key points of winter statement - vat, self employed grants, job support scheme, 10 yrs on bbl loans, delays to paying taxes
The Chancellor yesterday announced a raft of new measures to support businesses in the UK. Below are the key points to help you and your business:
Job Support Scheme - to replace the Furlough scheme
If an employee (e.g. Mr Bob Smith) works reduced hours the employer pays for that. And in addition the employer and government pay one third of the lost pay each (up to the cap £697.92).
So if Mr Bob Smith normally worked for an employer at £2,000 a month, and then worked 50% hours, he would get £1,000 normal pay plus £333 extra from their employer and £333 from the government.
Self Employed Support - SEISS Grants
Bounce Back (BBL) Loans and Covid (CBILS) Loans - time extended from 6 to 10 years to repay + chance to pay interest only
Tax - 5% VAT to remain longer, VAT deferred interest free payments, more time to pay HMRC
