The employee furlough scheme has been extended until the end of April 2021, with the Government continuing to contribute 80% towards employee wages, Chancellor Rishi Sunak confirmed yesterday.

The Government will also extend current Government-guaranteed Covid-19 business loan schemes until the end of March 2021.

This includes the Bounce Back Loan Scheme, Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme, and the Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme, which had initially been due to expire at the end of January.
