HMRC CONFIRMATION RECEIVED
People Group are delighted to announce that at 1pm today (Thursday 30 July) we have received an HMRC furlough update. This confirms that we are able to continue furloughing our contractors and making furlough payments throughout the Summer.
People Group CEO Terry Hillier, currently on his family holiday who has tirelessly lobbied for further guidance from the government, said:
For all affected contractors, there is no action required. Furlough payments will continue as before with full details available via your online portal.
People Group had expected to receive the HMRC confirmation last Friday 24 July, but when that didn’t appear we swiftly moved to an alternative plan to ensure contractors were paid. These plans are no longer required and will save the business thousands of pounds.
