Further guidance has been issued by HM Treasury for employers to assist in identifying those employees for whom an employer is eligible to claim furlough payments.

The guidance does not changes the earlier guidance but makes the position clearer. In respect of TUPE it states:
“Employee transfers under TUPE and on a change in ownership
A new employer is eligible to claim under the CJRS in respect of the employees of a previous business transferred after 28 February 2020 if either the TUPE or PAYE business succession rules apply to the change in ownership.
