    They could claim the amount being offered and deduct their fee etc and pay that over? The companies don't have to make up the 20% shortfall so really the umbrellas aren't going to be losing anything.
    It's actually a bloody good business idea. No contractors to deal with, all the fees coming in for the hassle of signing up to the government payout scheme. Hold my beer. Lucy??!?!?!

    It definitely is in the detail! In order to be eligible the employee must be "furloughed" and not completing any work at home, yet the umbrella cannot guarantee that there will be work at the end of it, so are unlikely to be able to furlough you, I am guessing unless the end client can guarantee the work post Covid. If the end client chooses to terminate, then it becomes out of our control.

    We are being asked about this and as of yet we are unable to give a definitive answer which we know is not helpful. Also the issue of being an employee for tax purposes

    If I get further details, I will let you all know.

    Very true. There's a huge amount of work etc needed to get the scheme running and define who can claim on it. I'm more hoping that the better umbrellas are keeping an eye on this and, if they are eligible to claim on it, they will do so for their customers.
