    On another thread it was saying that if pubs do takeaway they can’t claim the 80% government backed salary for their employees.

    Any news on that @Trumpet ?

    Afraid not, although it does sound like the kind of string that would be attached to such a scheme.

    BBC News website has this -

    “Who will pay my wages?
    If you are still employed but do not currently have work, the plan is that you will still get your wages.
    Your employer will be able to access grants, by the end of April, from the UK’s tax authority to allow them to keep paying you.
    The typical worker is paid £585 a week, on a median average (which is the middle point of all workers), according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS). That is about £2,340 a month.
    The government says 80% of gross wages in the private sector, up to £2,500 a month, for those not working and who would otherwise have been laid off will be covered by these grants from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
    These will be backdated to March and the scheme will last three months at least. The idea is to prevent mass unemployment.”
    (Copyright bbc news)

    It does not say that the business has to be closed before the payments kick in
