Support through the Self-employment Income Support Scheme
The Self-employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) supports self-employed individuals (including members of partnerships) who have lost income due to coronavirus (COVID-19).
This scheme allows you to claim a taxable grant worth 80% of your trading profits up to a maximum of £2,500 per month.
Those eligible will be able to claim a second up until October. The grant will be worth 70 percent of their average monthly trading profits, paid out in a single instalment covering three months’ worth of profits, and capped at £6,570 in total.
If you’re eligible for the second and final grant, and your business has been adversely affected on or after 14 July 2020 you must make a claim on or before 19 October 2020. You can claim for the second grant even if you did not make a claim for the first grant.
If you’re eligible, you will be advised of the date you can make your claim from. If your claim is approved you’ll receive your payment within 6 working days.
