What is a flexible furlough? How do I put employees on flexible furlough?

Yes we had another late Friday night update and a client with much greater HR expertise than us has kindly shared the following with us with regards to a number of questions that might be raised.

What is a flexible furlough?

From 1 July 2020, employers can bring furloughed employees back to work for any amount of time and any work pattern.

You will still be able to claim the furlough grant for the hours your flexibly furloughed employees do not work, compared to the hours they would normally have worked in that period.

How do I put employees on flexible furlough?

From 1 July 2020, only employees that you have successfully claimed a previous grant for will be eligible for more grants under the scheme.

This means they must have previously been furloughed for at least 3 consecutive weeks taking place any time between 1 March and 30 June 2020. For the minimum 3 consecutive week period to be completed by 30 June, the last day an employee could have started furlough for the first time was 10 June.

You should have a discussion with employees who you wish to place on the flexible furlough scheme because you will need to agree the arrangements of their part time work. The agreement should be confirmed in writing and you must keep a written record of the agreement for five years.

You do not need to place all your employees on furlough. In addition, you can continue to fully furlough employees if you wish.

How long can flexible furlough last?

Flexible furlough agreements can last any amount of time. This means that they do not need to last for a minimum of 3 weeks. However, the period that you claim for must be for a minimum period of 7 calendar days. Any flexible furlough period of less than this cannot be claimed for via the scheme.

Employees can enter into a flexible furlough agreement more than once.

What do I pay an employee on flexible furlough?

You will pay the employee for the hours they work, along with national insurance contributions and pension contributions for those hours.

The scheme will allow you to recover the remainder of wages to a maximum cap. Wage caps are proportional to the hours an employee is furloughed. For example, an employee is entitled to 60% of the £2,500 cap if they are placed on furlough for 60% of their usual hours.

The amount that the scheme will cover will begin to decrease from September 2020, and you will be responsible for all of the national insurance and pension contributions from August 2020, regardless of the employee being on flexible furlough.

Claims under the new scheme will be open from 1 July 2020.

When claiming for employees who are flexibly furloughed you should not claim until you are sure of the exact number of hours they will have worked during the claim period. This means that you should claim when you have certainty about the number of hours your employees are working during the claim period. If you claim in advance and your employee works for more hours than you have told HMRC about, then you will have to pay some of the grant back to HMRC.

What records do I need to keep?

You’ll need to keep records of how many hours your employees work and the number of hours they are furloughed during flexible furlough. For example, you will need to record that an employee who normally works for 37 hours a week is actually working for 15 hours and is furloughed for 22 hours.

Can my employees work for me during ‘down time’ in flexible furlough?

During flexible furlough, employees are not allowed to do any work for you or any linked or associated organisation during the periods that you record them as being on furlough.

Employees on flexible furlough can do training during the hours that they are recorded as being on furlough, but must be paid at least national minimum wage for those hours.

How do I calculate normal working hours?

If your employee is flexibly furloughed, you’ll need to work out your employee’s usual hours and record the actual hours they work as well as their furloughed hours for each claim period.

There are two different calculations you can use to work out your employee’s usual hours, depending on whether they work fixed or variable hours.

You should work out work out usual hours for employees who work variable hours, if either:

  • your employee is not contracted to a fixed number of hours
  • your employee’s pay depends on the number of hours they work

Where the employee’s working hours are fixed, or their pay does not vary with the amount of hours worked, the reference period for calculating their hours is the hours your employee was contracted for at the end of the last pay period ending on or before 19 March 2020.

Where an employee works variable hours, you will use the higher of:

  • the average number of hours worked in the tax year 2019 to 2020
  • the corresponding calendar period in the tax year 2019 to 2020.

 

Webinars (NOT TO BE MISSED)

One of the first and most important lessons that I have learnt is the time lost with family whilst I was working on the business and this is where Joe Laws of Joe Laws Photography will be joining us to discuss what he has planned to help people always appreciate this.  Already I have scheduled in our family photoshoot and these are memories that whilst might have in the past have been forgotten, but in the future, will always be remembered.

Support for your business. Returning to work. Mortgages.

We practice what we preach and have got ourselves well and truly prepared for the real storm that awaits as we face up to the challenges that lie ahead and are in a position to support you as needed.

We do now have three new members of the team that I’m sure you will all hear from in due course but also wanted to highlight some of the other changes that we are implementing over the coming weeks and months off the back of what we have learnt from lockdown and where we will be investing further in terms of time and resources:

  • We will; within our newsletters, be making our content more operational as well as financial based to assist you with the new challenges you are likely to face.
  • We will be issuing not just one newsletter per month, but as many as we see fit depending on announcements made to keep you as well-informed and up to date as possible.
  • Appreciating that not everybody will love the reading our newsletters and some would prefer something more interactive, we are currently considering the idea of fortnightly ‘huddles’ where we will have a dedicated hour for clients to join us and ask us whatever questions they wish.
  • We will maintain the idea of running webinars and are currently looking to run maybe one a month that will either be ran by us or an external expert from outside our field.
  • We will continue to update our resources page on our website; which can be found here for those that have not yet visited this, so if you miss anything you can go back and take a look at a time convenient to you.
  • Yes we have not started blogging as well to share our personal views and experiences as well so these too can be found on our resources page with one of favourites being the increasing importance of data.
  • We are in the process of fully rebuilding our website to again make this of more value and ‘future-proof’ for us and clients going forward.
  • We are also having some full customer-relationship software built to further tailor the content and support provided to you as clients and potential clients.
  • We are introducing new service offerings that we have already been providing during lockdown that we consider will be needed more than ever with one of these being the role of helping be your bank manager.  In the current climate, not everybody has a dedicated bank manager, but for those that do; including us, it has been invaluable and we will help breach this gap so we can support you when it comes to accessing finance.
  • In addition to our dedicated resources page, we have built out dedicated communication channels for specific support that include the following:
    • xero@gtaccountants.com – if you have any training needs or suggestions about content that you would like then please use this e-mail address.  Specific queries about your data within Xero should continue to be fed back directly to your client manager for a quicker and more tailored response.
    • funding@gtaccountants.com – should have any funding needs or questions then feel free to send them here and these can be picked up by our dedicated funding team.
    • enquiries@gtaccountants.com – we would ask that should you have any general comments, suggestions or even just improvements you would like for us to consider implementing, please feel free to share them here as we want to keep moving forward and improving so that we can do the same with our clients.

What I want to leave you with; at the bottom of this section, is that I remain cautiously optimistic about the future.  We must acknowledge that we are all at a crossroad or junction in our business journeys, and those that are looking optimistically ahead have taken similar actions to those above but tailored to their own businesses.

Have you done enough to prepare for what lies ahead?

Returning to work

One of our clients has kindly shared some recent work that they have been working on that might be of use for those returning to their usual place of work soon.

Feel free to contact Paul directly.

Mortgages

As the financial landscape right before us changes so rapidly, we have been chatting with mortgage brokers about what this means for those about to renew their mortgage this year and we are all in agreement that if this applies to you, then chat to your mortgage/financial advisor as soon as possible just to make sure you are prepared.

Words Are Good. Actions Are Better. Results Are Best.

Accountability has never more important than now, so why are we not seeing more people stepping up and showing real leadership?

Doing so could be the deciding factor in whether your business survives, and even thrives.

The press does its best to question the lack of accountability with leaders across the world. Closer to home, we’re seeing business leaders who are unwilling or unable to step forward in the current climate.

Why?

Distraction

Thanks to modern-day technology, we’re a click away from it. Whether that’s your phone, your laptop, or the TV or whatever, this on a day to day basis means it’s easy to lose focus and fail to achieve what you set out to do.

We need to stay focused and keep the end goal in sight.

What do you want to achieve? How will you do it? When will you do it by?

Let’s focus on three key areas:

  1. Time
  2. Information
  3. Money

Time

We want everything done yesterday.

The younger generation gets, possibly, unfairly tarred with this brush, but we’re all guilty of it. Can you say you’ve never paid extra for next day delivery with Amazon instead of going down the high street?

From a business perspective, everyone wants success. And they want it now. Right now.

And should we expect anything else? There are so-called business gurus out there who lead us to believe we can make a million pounds in a day. Yes, a day.

The volume of ‘how-to’, cheat guides and inspirational LinkedIn posts mean we expect more, quicker and easier whilst paying less for it.

Information

The amount of information you have at your fingertips can be overwhelming. And most of the time, you don’t have to go seeking it. It interrupts your day, with most of it being unhelpful and irrelevant.

Last week (yes, last week) I received a COVID-19 support email from a technology company I’d never heard of – several weeks after the pandemic has started. Talk about a waste of time.

How many support emails have you received? How much of this information can you read, process, and act on while staying on task with the important jobs you’ve got to do?

You need the right information at the right time. It’s critical to your success. So make sure you have measures in place to manage it correctly.

Money

How much money have you saved during this lockdown?

Despite the obvious financial strain the pandemic is putting on your business, you must’ve noticed you’re spending less than usual; ignoring food and alcohol costs perhaps.

This shows the amount of money we’re used to wasting. Look at that! There is food in the fridge after all, and you do have something to wear.

Like success, people want more money, easier and quicker. But money alone can’t fix problems caused by information overload and lack of time. You can’t buy either.

The Key To Solving All Three

You!

Many business owners are sitting on their hands waiting for it all the blow over. They think in a few weeks everything will be back to normal.

It won’t.

Other people read and regurgitate information to make it look like they’re doing the right things, without actually implementing anything they’re learning. They think that’s enough.

It isn’t.

Other business owners are keeping their sights firmly ahead. They’re leading by example. They’ve made a plan, communicated it clearly with their staff and fellow business leaders, and are doing what they promise. They trust that be doing this, they’ll see real results that will drive their business forward.

They are correct.

So, ask yourself which of these three people you are? If you don’t like the answer, it’s not too late, but time is running out.

You need to act now. You need the right information at the right time, which is something your accountant should be able to do for you.

The accountant you need in your corner right now is one that gives you the relevant and timely information you need to form a plan, communicate this to your staff, and do what needs to be done to survive and thrive COVID-19.

Get in touch today to find out how we can work with you to implement the action steps you need to get the results you want.

Government Support Update

Rather than rush to get this out to you on Friday evening, we’ve taken a closer look at this and the detail then followed so can now summarise the latest announcements below.

Furlough changes
From 1 July 2020, businesses will be given the flexibility to bring furloughed employees back part time. This is a month earlier than previously announced to help support people back to work.

Individual firms will decide the hours and shift patterns their employees will work on their return, so that they can decide on the best approach for them – and will be responsible for paying their wages while in work.

The scheme updates mean that the following will apply for the period people are furloughed:

  • June and July: The government will pay 80% of wages up to a cap of £2,500 as well as employer National Insurance (ER NICS) and pension contributions. Employers are not required to pay anything.
  • August: The government will pay 80% of wages up to a cap of £2,500. Employers will pay ER NICs and pension contributions – for the average claim, this represents 5% of the gross employment costs the employer would have incurred had the employee not been furloughed.
  • September: The government will pay 70% of wages up to a cap of £2,187.50. Employers will pay ER NICs and pension contributions and 10% of wages to make up 80% total up to a cap of £2,500. For the average claim, this represents 14% of the gross employment costs the employer would have incurred had the employee not been furloughed.
  • October: The government will pay 60% of wages up to a cap of £1,875. Employers will pay ER NICs and pension contributions and 20% of wages to make up 80% total up to a cap of £2,500. For the average claim, this represents 23% of the gross employment costs the employer would have incurred had the employee not been furloughed.

Self-employment income support scheme extension
Rishi Sunak announced last week that the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme will be extended – with those eligible able to claim a second and final grant capped at £6,570.
Those eligible under the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS), which has so far seen 2.3 million claims worth £6.8 billion will be able to claim a second and final grant in August. The grant will be worth 70% of their average monthly trading profits, paid out in a single instalment covering three months’ worth of profits, and capped at £6,570 in total.

New Funding/further updates

Local authority grants:

It now appears that local authorities are gradually starting to drip feed out the discretionary grants that we mentioned on previous newsletters though they appear to each be operating at different speeds.  If you feel like you fell between the cracks then contact your local authority today for an update or keep an eye on their website.

There is also other financial support still out there that is not all directly related to COVID-19 with us including just a handful below:

General support for start-ups and those businesses looking to grow:

Blog - data is your director

Data Is Your New Director, And It’s About To Make MD

Without recognising the importance of embracing the digital age, every day you are throwing time, money, and effort down the drain.

Now; more than ever, data is the key driver; built of the back of the correct financial software, and here’s why.

The old days

You remember those days of not-so-distant-past, don’t you?

When a Simplex D book was the core part of any set of financial statements and without it, you’d be lost.

And then there were the old spreadsheets. Remember how they’d get passed from computer to computer, each person making their own amendments without anyone controlling a centralised version of it? When it came to making a report, the copies would be stitched together until you got something that ‘looked right’.

It took teams of people, with teams of people helping them, all under the watchful eye of the finance director.

Expensive stuff.

You’ll be glad to hear that’s a thing of the past. Nowadays, digital accountancy software does the job of a full finance team and finance director, with one big difference: the software does it better.

By design, the software keeps everything organised and in one place. It’s simple to use for anyone, and the data updates itself. Teams of people can work on an account at once without worrying about deleting or duplicating data.

You can use the software to pull reports in an instant that would take finance teams weeks, saving you time, money, and effort.

Here are three reasons why the right software, and the right accountant, is now all you need.

1) Data Input

Sick of logging expenses? With our accountancy software, all you need to do is take a photo of a receipt with your smartphone and poof, that’s it sent and logged for you.

Plus, we can link your bank account with the software. This way, the two systems communicate with one another and update themselves.

Suppliers can email the software, cutting out time usually spent emailing back and forth and logging everything manually.

And that’s what’s available right now. The world of accountancy software is moving at a fast pace and new ways to save time, effort, and money are being developed every day.

2) Basic Reporting

The data you need, at your fingertips, from any location.

What can you use this data for?

  • Comparing figures over whatever period you consider relevant and being able to manipulate this
  • Running customer and supplier reports
  • Establish payment patterns
  • Chasing debts

Finally, you can take control of your business to the fullest and get a clear, overall view of what’s going in in the best way possible: the numbers.

Any information you need is readily available to you. The answers to your questions answered, instantly, meaning you can get back on with your job.

3) Advanced Reporting

We can build you a bespoke dashboard of key features within your financial software to give you the information you need to make the right decisions.

We can set up your software to tell you when a customer’s credit rating changes, or when an internal target is missed. The best thing about this is the fact that once we set it up, it takes no effort from you to maintain it. All you get bothered with are the results and information you want and need to hear so you can force on the actions needing to be taken.

Our world is a smaller place than ever, so we are all competing with one another globally in some shape or form. This might be daunting, but with digital financial software, it doesn’t have to be.

If it’s that easy, where does an accountant come in?

The implementation, training, and overseeing of this technology are where your accountant comes in.

You need to focus your energy in the places that will give you the best return.

Give your business the best chance of success. Get in touch today to get started.

The challenges we can expect next

The Easy Part Has Now Passed. Whilst we won’t deny the fact that the past few weeks and months have been challenging; as we fast approach a further announcement regarding the potential easing of lock down, more troubled times await us in the business world.

I have said on a number of occasions already that the business curve is most definitely behind the health curve and will be very different to it also.

We don’t say this to make people feel uneasy as we want to remain calm, but we don’t want people to grow complacent over the coming weeks and months.  To maintain this calm, we must retain control to the best of our ability and that means not letting up as we strike back against the current challenges that we have faced and those that still await us.

Let’s first start with some fairly obvious issues that lie ahead:

  1. These Government-backed loans will need repaying and whether they are 80% backed or 100% backed, if they are not repaid, it will impact your credit rating as a minimum.
  2. Aside from the loans, the Government has provided significant financial support such as local authority grants, furlough payments, self-employed grants etc.  These will all need to repaid but indirectly; in some shape or form, and we expect this to be via any or all of the following:
    1. Increase in personal tax rates
    2. Increase in company tax rates
    3. Increase in national insurance
    4. Increase in VAT

Some of these may come subtly through the reduction of some allowances and some may just be in terms of a hike in rates such as a jump in company tax from 19% to 30% would not be beyond the realms of possibility.  Whilst it would unreasonable and probably unlikely that these hikes will come immediately; we would be shocked if they don’t come at all, and whilst some industries might benefit from some respite such as hospitality, they may also not benefit at all nor may anybody be given any degree of leniency.

  1. Whether you have accessed any of the financial support or not, we cannot realistically see any way in which you will not be part of the repaying of it!

There are then the operational challenges that may await such as:

  • Suppliers reducing or revoking credit terms
  • Delivery timescales for materials being longer
  • Staff not wanting to return to work
  • Customers delaying orders, cancelling them or wanting extended credit
  • All of the above and more!

You might even think a lot of the above might not apply to you but it will impact you in some way or another as prices just in day to day life with regards to shopping are likely to rise!

Our key message and support

The support you have benefited from to date must continue in some shape or form to help you through the times we have ahead.  We encourage you to engage with us over the coming days and weeks to discuss this support in greater detail as we grow our team and other resources to be able to deliver this on an ongoing basis for you.

We know concerns will remain and cost will be a barrier for some if not many, but we have worked hard to find solutions to this that we can discuss at the same time.

Remember these two messages

  1. With the government support to date and the announcements made and pending, they may have whetted our appetite with regards to more positive times ahead, but it will not go far enough to quench our thirst.
  2. Finally, never forget – calm is the word but not complacency.

Webinars (NOT TO BE MISSED)

Blog - Family v work

Family versus Work versus You

While we miss our loved ones, we’re actually seeing more of our immediate family than ever before.

Have you taken the time to reflect?

  • Perhaps you’ve been thinking about the times you missed meals at home because you were working for small margins.
  • Or all those weekends you worked; missing out on time with the family, to get your business to where it needed to be a success.
  • And how; during lockdown, you’re now reaping the benefits of feeling healthier compared with beforehand when you found no time to exercise.

Before the pandemic broke out, was your business on its feet? If you could ask your ‘startup self’ if they’d be happy with where you are now, would you say yes? If so, why have you, up until now, been continuing to work in that way?

It’s time to pivot your business and your life. Why? To make sure you can continue to enjoy everything you appreciate right now and previously took for granted.

Family

For the first time ever, I can eat three meals a day with my two daughters and my wife. I love it.

I’ve watched my daughters, aged two and five, bond so much over the past few weeks. Even though we were close to begin with, we’ve grown even closer and I’ve seen first-hand their development.

That, to me, is priceless. So, I’ve pivoted my attitude and outlook.

I thought I was missing out on these moments because of ‘work commitments’. In reality, it’s taken this pandemic to show me that it was actually because of the decisions I made as a business owner.

Not anymore.

Work

I work long hours. I bet you do too.

Why do we do it? To provide for our family and our team. If we hated it, we wouldn’t do it. My job is a hobby to me, and I’ve got no hesitations in telling anyone that I absolutely love it.

Most of my clients have the same mindset, but because everyone’s working the hardest they can for their own business this presents a unique challenge: everyone is working ‘too ethically’.

What this looked like for us was we let certain clients ask and expect a service they could not afford or were not willing to pay for. We tried too hard to please.

You want to do your best and keep everyone happy, so it’s an easy trap to fall into.

Don’t get me wrong, we will continue to go above and beyond for our clients. However, we pivoted our business to start working how we wanted to work, with the people we wanted to work with.

Did that mean letting some clients go? Yes. Was it scary? A little. But was it best for our own business? Absolutely.

The ultimate goal is to run your business, and not let your business run you. Now we’re in control of the margins we want to make. It’s a work in process, so we’re using the downtime to give us a chance to explore this further to find a fit we’re happy with.

You

Fitness has always been important to me.

I’m approaching 40, so I had been going to the gym three times per week (on top of other weekly sports) for a while now. Mentally and physically, it’s an escape.

If you work out, you’ll have made the switch from the gym to home exercises, and like thousands of other people across the UK you might’ve taken up running.

This testing time has made me appreciate this more than ever.

If you’ve recently started, ask yourself why you haven’t done this before now? What was it that put you off?

Going Forward

There’s a real risk that once our government lifts lockdown, you’ll fall back into the bad habits we’ve discussed.

Perhaps you’ll have less free time than ever before. The demands of your business may outweigh the demands of your family and health as you try to recoup the time lost.

So how are you planning on stopping this? If you’re enjoying this time with your family and are feeling better for it, what are you going to do to maintain this?

If you’re unsure, it might be time to contact us. We will help you rebuild your business without sacrificing the work/life balance you’re now enjoying.

There’s one thing you can never get back – time. So how do you save more of it to spend on the things you love?

Technology is just one of the ways to achieve this, but there are many other ways dependant on what’s right for you. Contact us today to put measures in place now that you’ll enjoy in the future and never take for granted what you had previously.

More than ever you are going to need your team around you; pulling in the right direction, when lock down is lifted and Alison will go through not just what should be done now but what should be done moving forward also.

For a little bit more information about Alison and her business; aside from the fact she is amazing and has worked with our team, you can access her website here.
