As you will be aware, the Chancellor of the Exchequer yesterday gave an update on his Winter Economy Plan, including several proposed measures to support businesses through the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Our colleagues in Scottish Chambers of Commerce have produced a short summary of the key announcements and the details that have been released of the schemes so far. You can download this by clicking here. Or read it in the PDF viewer below.
Some details have also been published on GOV.UK of the Job Support Scheme and Self-Employment Income Support Scheme grant extension.
Note that employers using the Job Support Scheme will also be able to claim the Job Retention Bonus if they meet the eligibility criteria for that means of support.
As ever, we will strive to keep you updated as soon as more details become available over the coming days and weeks. Keep an eye on the COVID-19 Support Updates pages for all the information we have on the various support and guidance available.
