The following information will be published on GOV.UK:

- the company number for companies and Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs)
The banded ranges are:
- £1 to £10,000

HMRC will also be improving the information available to furloughed employees by including details of claims made for them, for claim periods starting on or after 1 December 2020 in their Personal Tax Account on GOV.UK
HMRC will not publish details of employers claiming through the scheme if you can show that publicising these would result in a serious risk of violence or intimidation to certain relevant individuals, or any individual living with them.
Those individuals include:
- employers that are individuals – a relevant individual can be the employer themselves, or any employee of the employer
- employers that are companies – a relevant individual can be a director, officer or employee of that company
- employers that are partnerships – a relevant individual can be a partner, officer or employee of that partnership
- employers that are limited liability partnerships – a relevant individual can be a member or employee of that limited liability partnership
- trustees of a trust – a relevant individual can be a settlor, trustee or beneficiary of the trust
If you are an employer and think that a serious risk of violence or intimidation will come from publicising your name, company registration number and amount of claim, you will need to tell us and provide us with evidence of why you think this.
This evidence could include:
- a police incident number if you’ve been threatened or attacked
- documentary evidence of a threat or attack, such as photos or recordings
- evidence of possible disruption or targeting
Further details on how to request that HMRC do not publish your details will be available soon, providing employers enough time to do this before the first publication date.
