The latest official statistics on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) and Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) have been published today and we thought they may be of interest to you.

CJRS

The data provides analysis of claims up to 31 August, from applications submitted to HMRC by 30 September. It contains data by Local Authority and Parliamentary Constituency, and includes a snapshot of flexible furlough figures, broken down by region and business sectors.

SEISS

The data contains detail on the second grant of the scheme – SEISS 2, which covers the period of its opening on 17 August, up to 30 September. The information is broken down by age, gender, business sectors and regions down to Local Authority and Parliamentary Constituency level. There is also a summary of claims under each SEISS scheme.

We have also published an analysis document – Official Statistics analysis report of ended furloughs. This analysis is based on HMRC data for CJRS and HMRC PAYE Real Time Information up to 31 August 2020. It is an analysis of that data to see when people were furloughed and when they returned to payroll.

It finds that 90% (3.9 million) of the 4.3 million employees that left the CJRS furlough scheme between April and July 2020 were still on their original payroll in August 2020, suggesting they remained working for their original employer.

An overview of CJRS and SEISS statistics can be found here.

The next release of the official statistics is planned for 19 November.
