COVID-19 - Initial Steps to Apply for Furlough Funding

Dear Client,

We hope you are enjoying this sunny Easter weekend.

We are sorry to interrupt your family time but NannyPaye is now in a position to start to guide you through the process of applying for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme grant.  Few details have been officially released but from what has been published we gather this process will take us working together as a team.  If you have not furloughed your employee please take no action at this time but do keep this e-mail for future reference should your situation change. 

As much as we wished to, we have discovered that NannyPaye will not be able to directly apply for the grant for you.  To quote the guidance updated by gov.uk on 8th April “File only agents, including Payroll Bureaus, will not be able to access the service due to data protection reasons”.

This means we are actively working on giving you the tools and information you will need to make the claim at the appropriate time.  We expect demand for our service to be beyond capacity should we need to help each client individually with this process so we encourage you to follow our guidance and importantly start the first steps immediately.

We still do not know exactly what information you will require when making the claim so we are focusing today on getting all clients into the position to be able to apply for the grant when the portal goes live on the expected date of 20th April.

Action Required Immediately

To make the claim you will be required to register for PAYE Online. This is quite straightforward but we have created a step by step, screenshot guide on our website for you. It is very important you start this immediately as there will be a 7-10 day delay between applying and your portal going live due to a postal password being sent to you.

For This Step You Will Need

  • Your PAYE reference number. This can be found on the top of the P60 for your Nanny.  We have brought forward the date of issuing these via email to earlier today. Please check your spam folder if you have not received this document.
  • Your Accounts Office reference number. You will find this at the top of the letter we sent to you with your recent Quarter 4 PAYE bill. Please ensure you use the reference at the top of the letter not the longer reference used when making your bank transfer.

Please follow this link for guidance on the process.
Estimated time required 5 minutes.
