Furlough Misuse Investigations

The furlough scheme, alternatively known as the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, has been a lifeline for many businesses throughout the pandemic. However, HMRC has made it clear that they will investigate thoroughly any claims that a business has misused the scheme. In fact HMRC has announced a new enforcement unit with 1,000 inspectors to fully investigate such claims.
