P45 leaving date incorrect due to company unable to pay payroll

My employer was struggling to finance itself due to the lock down since 23rd March.
Initially all employees were able to work from home but the company was unable to pay us for March payroll so  it varied our employment contracts by agreement to allow this and furlough us later.
We were then furloughed for April. However the company then went quickly into administration and the administrator made most employees redundant after brief consideration and told them they were not entitled to be paid for furlough at all now.
As employees were last paid in February the administrator has dated the leaving date as February on P45 rather that April. How can this be correct especially as  February was in a different tax year to now?
We were expecting a P60 for 2019/20 documenting pay received to February and then a P45 for 2020/21 dated April with zero pay.

    Challenge the P45 date in an email to the administrators and see what they say? Is the insolvency service still paying you all the outstanding weeks despite the P45 date being incorrect? If so what does difference does it make? Also if more than 20 people were employed at the same location you can claim the Protective Award at Employment Tribunal.
