How to process a Furlough grant from HMRC

If you have received a grant from HMRC for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme you will first need to create a nominal code for the payment, to do this go to Settings > Chart of Account and scroll to the bottom.  If you are going to be importing this with other transactions through on a bank feed, when you press match you will need to select the ‘Create’ tab, choose ‘Transaction” from the drop-down and then select the code you created. When you import the transactions the entry will be allocated to the code you created.

If you are going to enter the payment manually via view/add transactions then you can select the code from the drop-down field where you can select the code.

Unfortunately, the setup of the code itself is your choice and we can’t advise what options to set.  If you are unsure how this code is to be created, we would recommend that you speak to your accountant as this would affect how it would appear on your financial reports.
For more information on how to set up a new nominal code, please take a look at this knowledge base article.
