JSS, SEISS and Business Grants – Going up through the Tiers

At lunchtime on Thursday 22 October, the Chancellor announced further support for jobs and businesses across the country, with further enhancements for those in areas of the country that are rated as high and very high risk of coronavirus transmission – Tiers 2 and 3. The Job Support Scheme (JSS), which applies across the UK, will be extended as below, with the original scheme announcements shown as a comparison:
Original Scheme New Scheme
Commencement date 1 November 2020 1 November 2020
End date 30 April 2021 30 April 2021
Employee on payroll qualifying date 23 September 2020 23  September 2020
Employee minimum work time (% of normal hours) 33% 20%
Support given for unworked hours (as %):
–       from the government 33% 62%
–       from the employer 33% 5%
Government contribution monthly cap £697.92 £1,541.75
Other scheme details are as originally announced, although further details are promised shortly. The table below gives an outline of the revised support that will be available assuming that the contribution cap is not breached:
Hours of normal working as a percentage
Worked 20% 40% 50% 60% 80%
Not Working 80% 60% 50% 40% 20%
Percentage of normal pay due
Total 73% 80% 84% 86% 93%
Paid by Government 48% 35% 29% 21% 8%
Employer 25% 45% 55% 65% 85%
Additionally, for those businesses in the higher tiers that are legally forced to close, the extended JSS – JSS Closed – will continue to apply. This pays up to 70% of an employee’s wages capped at £2,100 per month. The Self-Employed Income Support Scheme (SEISS) is also to be enhanced by increasing the grant from 20% to 40% of earnings and increasing the cap from £1,875 to £3,750. Those who qualified for the previous grants will be paid two amounts, one covering the period from 1 November 2020 to 31 January 2021 and the other covering the three month period to 30 April 2021. The rate at which the second grant is to be paid may be subject to review. Business grants, administered by local authorities in Tier 2 areas, are also to be additionally funded to allow grants to be made to those businesses that are not forced to close under the regulations, but which are impacted by the additional restrictions. These are principally hospitality, accommodation and leisure businesses. The funding amounts will be equivalent to:
  • For rateable values below £15,000, £934 per month;
  • For rateable values £15,000 to £51,000, £1,400 per month;
  • For rateable values greater than £51,000, £2,100 per month.
These amounts are set at 70% of the grants, capped at £3,000 per month, payable to those businesses that are legally required to close. For Tier 3 areas, funding is available up to £3,000 per business, whether closed or open, subject to negotiation between central government and the relevant local authority. We will be updating the details available regarding ongoing government support as more information is published.
