Image for HMRC to publish employer furlough claim details

HMRC will publish details of employers who have made claims under the Job Retention Scheme for the month of December onwards.

Details including the employer names, an indication of the value of the claim and, for companies and Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs) the company registration number will be made public.

Further details on how HMRC will give an indication of the value of the claim will be available from late November.

HMRC will not publish details of employers claiming through the scheme if you can show that publicising these would result in a serious risk of violence or intimidation to certain individuals, or any individual living with them.

Those individuals include:

  • employers that are individuals - a relevant individual can be the employer themselves, or any employee of the employer
  • employers that are companies - a relevant individual can be a director, officer or employee of that company
  • employers that are partnerships - a relevant individual can be a partner, officer or employee of that partnership
  • employers that are limited liability partnerships - a relevant individual can be a member or employee of that limited liability partnership
  • trustees of a trust - a relevant individual can be a settlor, trustee or beneficiary of the trust

If you are an employer and think that a serious risk of violence or intimidation will come from publicising your name, company registration number and amount of claim, you will need to inform HMRC and provide them with evidence of why you think this.

This evidence could include:

  • a police incident number if you’ve been threatened or attacked
  • documentary evidence of a threat or attack, such as photos or recordings
  • evidence of possible disruption or targeting

Further details on how to request that HMRC do not publish your details will be available soon, providing employers enough time to do this before the first publication date.

We will update you on this once we know more.
