Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme update

We understand that the HM Revenue & Customs portal for Furlough claims under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme is now in the Beta testing phase and the aim is for it to be launched on 20th April 2020. Once applications have been made, funds should be received within 4-6 days, so potentially by 30th April.
HM Revenue & Customs are suggesting that they can accept up to 450,000 furlough claims each day. The Service is designed to be self-managed by employers and guidance will be in place to assist.
