Certsure has confirmed that it has paid back all the furlough payments received during the COVID-19 pandemic. The payment, which equates to £760,000, was returned to the Government in August 2021. Gary Anderson, Certsure’s Chairman describes the move as “the right thing to do.”
Mr Anderson continued:
“When COVID-19 hit, there was a tremendous amount of uncertainty surrounding the impact this pandemic would have on the economy. We were not excluded from this and needed to take steps to protect the business and our staff to ensure continued service to our 36,000 customers.
“As such, the furlough scheme was a welcome and much needed lifeline during this period. However, the team mobilised quickly, and through dedication and hard work, we were swiftly able to identify new ways of working as we continued to support our customers in their roles as critical workers.
“These steps, and the continued loyalty of our valued customers, has resulted in the stabilisation of the business. So, we repaid our payments to the public purse and take the opportunity to thank the Government for their support.”
