Self-Employed Income Support Scheme 2

Self-Employed Income Support Scheme (SEISS)
– Update 18 June 2020

The scheme currently allows you to claim a taxable grant worth 80% of your average monthly trading profits.  This will be paid out in a single instalment covering 3 months’ worth of profits.  The amount is capped at £7,500 in total.

If you are eligible and want to claim the first grant you must make your claim on or before 13 July 2020.

HMRC have updated their guidance on the SEISS and the scheme has now been extended.

You will be able to make a claim for a second and final grant in August 2020.

If you receive the grant you can continue to work, start a new trade or take on other employment including voluntary work.

The grant does not need to be repaid but will be subject to Income Tax and self-employed National Insurance.

HMRC will work out if you are eligible and how much you may get.
