As standard, HMRC will be publishing the details of all businesses who have submitted a claim under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. However, under certain circumstances, you can request that HMRC does not publish details about your CJRS claim.

You can ask that HMRC does not publish your claim details if you can show evidence that it would result in serious risk of violence or intimidation to:

  • you or anyone living with you
  • an individual associated with your business or anyone living with them

Examples of individuals associated with your business include:

an employee

  • a director, officer or employee of that company
  • a partner, officer or employee of that partnership
  • a member or employee of a limited liability partnership
  • a settlor, trustee or beneficiary of a trust

You must make this request yourself; we cannot do it for you.

HMRC will not publish any of your details until a decision has been made and you have been informed.

To submit a request, you will need your:

  • employer Government Gateway ID and password
  • employer PAYE reference number
  • business name
  • contact details

You must provide evidence of why you think there would be a serious risk. Evidence can be:

  • written details of why you think publication could lead to the threat of violence or intimidation
  • a police incident number if you’ve already been threatened or attacked
  • photos of a previous threat or attack
  • evidence of possible disruption or targeting
  • any other material which can support your request
