FYI - Updated national, regional and trade stats CJRS and SEISS

A fifth set of official national, regional and trade stats for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) and Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) have now been published yesterday.  The CJRS data provides analysis of claims up to 31 August, from applications submitted to HMRC by 30 September. Regional and Local Authority level data is included, and a snapshot of flexible furlough figures, broken down by region and business sectors. Please note that claims can still be made for periods from 1 July (until 30 November) which means the CJRS data for July and August claims is still subject to revision. The SEISS data contains details on the second grant of the scheme – SEISS 2, which covers the period of its opening on 17 August, up to 30 September. The information is broken down by age, gender, business sectors and regions down to Local Authority. There is also a summary of claims under each SEISS scheme. The CJRS statistics published today can be found here:https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/coronavirus-job-retention-scheme-statistics-october-2020 The SEISS statistics published today can be found here:https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/self-employment-income-support-scheme-statistics-october-2020 An overview of CJRS and SEISS statistics can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/hmrc-coronavirus-covid-19-statistics A further release of the official statistics is planned for 19 November.  We have also published an analysis document - Official Statistics analysis report of ended furloughs. This analysis reviews when people were furloughed and when they returned to payroll. It is based on HMRC CJRS data and Pay As You Earn (PAYE) Real Time Information (RTI) up to 31 August 2020. It finds that 90% (3.9 million) of the 4.3 million employees that left the CJRS furlough scheme between April and July 2020 were still on their original payroll in August 2020, suggesting they remained working for their original employer. The analysis publication can be found here:https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/coronavirus-job-retention-scheme-statistics-secondary-analysis
