Coronavirus: Download a template if you're claiming for 100 or more employees through the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme

19 June 2020


Complete a template with the details of the employees you're claiming for and upload this when you claim (for claims on or after 1 July 2020).

If you’re claiming on or after 1 July 2020 for 100 or more employees, you’ll need to upload a file containing each of the employee’s:

  • full name
  • National Insurance number (or payroll reference number if you do not have this)
  • payroll reference number (sometimes called a pay identify or staff number)
  • furlough start and end date (using the format DD/MM/YYYY)
  • full amount claimed (pounds and pence)
  • normal hours (using decimals, for example 7.5)
  • actual hours worked (using decimals)
  • furloughed hours (using decimals)

You’ll need to ensure that you:

  • provide only the employee information requested here - you might be asked again
  • submit one line per employee for the whole period
  • do not break up the calculation into multiple periods within the claim
  • do not split data by contract type (for example, those paid weekly and monthly should be claimed for together)
  • upload your file as an .xls, .xlsx, .csv or .ods using a template provided by HMRC when you claim
