RE: Ineligible for Furlough Due Annual PAYE Salary



I am writing to you as a company director of a single person Ltd co. directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.


I urgently request you to consider the need to move the furlough eligibility date to the 5th April. As this would allow people such as myself, who are paid on an annual payroll, but did not make a submission to HMRC by the date 19th March. Although not legally required to do so. 


At present, we are unable to qualify to be furloughed and unable to access any other support schemes set out by the government.
