McCloud Latest Updates

Further to the McCloud Briefing Note 3 that was issued by email to all Fund employers on 18/01/2022, please see the following important updates below:

  • The final deadline for submission of the 1st April 2014 to 21st March 2021 data was 28th February 2022.
  • The deadline for the submission of the 1st April 2021 to 31st March 2022 data has been extended to 30th September 2022. Unlike the current file upload, employers will only need to confirm those members that have had hours changes/service breaks in the period. Details of the process will be communicated in the next few months.
  • We no longer require hours changes/service breaks to be submitted via the monthly submission file for data from 1st April 2022. It is anticipated that there will be another data collection to capture hours changes/service breaks data from 1st April 2022 to 31st March 2023. Further details will be issued in due course.
