This week, we have rounded up a number of news stories across SME schemes, employer updates, Covid support grants and pensions. 

Furlough and TUPE claims from May 2021:

If you are employer, you can claim under the normal Furlough rules for the employees transferred from another business, provided they meet the eligibility requirements.
