Employers to pay towards furlough scheme from August announces Chancellor Rishi Sunak

Chancellor Rishi Sunak has said employers will pay 10 per cent of salaries from September, and 20 per cent from October, before the scheme closes.

He also announced a “new flexible furlough” which will allow people to work part-time, so people can start to contribute.

This will come in from July 1, rather than August 1 as planned.

The chancellor confirmed that the self-employed income scheme will also be extended for a final grant.
