Staff Furlough Portal Opens Today

Dear Members,

The HMRC CJRS Portal opened at 5.30 this morning, at 7.20 it crashed. (These people are completely unprepared)

Also why are they stopping our staff from working? Surley they should be doing whatever they can to get our businesses back on their feet, after this civil service inflicted disaster. Both in China, lies and Coverup, and in the UK, failure to stop the planes and the PPE debacle.

Let’s take half the countries resource and insist they must sit at home doing nothing. That will help the economy and wellbeing – NOT.  I supose its just all they know!


Anyway my thanks to Chamber Member Consensus HR, for providing us with updated information. See Below

If you have any questions please contact Matthew on or call 01438 310062
