The Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (JRS) is one of the key pieces of support available to businesses through the COVID crisis. The Scheme allows eligible businesses to furlough employees and apply for a grant to cover a portion of their usual monthly wage costs.

We have a range of resources available to help indies understand the Scheme:

  • Key links to resources
    • CJRS Overview
    • Making a claim
    • Q&A for indies: JRS and furloughing
    • Furlough letter templates
    • Government Guidance


Please note: Government guidance changes regularly and whilst we are doing everything we can to keep our information up to date we advise you to look carefully at the date that it was posted/last updated. Please also keep checking your e-mails from Pact for the most up to date announcements and information.
