(Reuters) – UK companies have over £ 1bn (£ 1.40bn)
Corporations have repaid HM Revenue & Customs £ 709 million claimed under the government’s coronavirus job retention program, the newspaper said, with an additional £ 319 million being returned as misappropriated monies.
The paper https://on.ft.com/3pZKW7g cited data obtained through a Freedom of Information Request (FOI). The amount is still far less than the total of £ 64 billion the Treasury Department spent on the vacation program as of May 14th.
($ 1 = 0.7144 pounds)
