    And eek is right on another point, and I'm sorry if it wasn't made explicit to you. You cannot do any work in a furloughed role and expect the benefit to be paid.
    I am completely aware that you cannot work in a furloughed role.

    All my salary is being declared as taxable income as far as I am aware - it's how the umbrella company pays out to its employees that has caused a problem. They are dividing things up into a 'basic rate' (minimum wage) and then anything above that is called 'bonus' even though it isn't an actual bonus - it's just that my wage varies month to month depending how many shifts I work etc.


      I honestly have no idea how the scheme will work in your case, sorry. I'm not convinced anyone really knows until claims start being submitted.
