UK employers will be able to verify their employees’ isolation note on the NHS website soon.
Your employee who seeks medical advice from NHS during the coronavirus outbreak can get an isolation note online.
The note will have the following details about your employees:
- the 16 digits reference numbers.
- your employee’s name
- Your employee’s date of birth
- Start date and the end date of isolation
The isolation note is issued by the NHS and it is an official confirmation of an employee absent from work either they have to self isolate because they have symptoms or their family members have symptoms of coronavirus. They must self isolate immediately to prevent the spread of the virus.
Additionally, your employee may use the note as proof that they are unwell and following the government guidance to self-isolate. Companies who paid statutory sick pay to employees who self isolate would entitle to a refund from the government.
Besides, companies are given an additional three month to file their company accounts with Companies House with no late filing penalty. However, you must apply to extend your filing deadline with Companies House. You can do it online and it only takes 15 minutes.
Universally, you may use the Companies House web filing service to submit your company accounts and confirmation statement online. For this purpose, you would require your company’s authentication code to file online.
