Self employed? Check if you can claim a grant through the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme

If you're self-employed or a member of a partnership and have been adversely affected by coronavirus (COVID-19) find out if you can use this UK Government scheme to claim a grant. 

The scheme will allow you to claim a taxable grant of 80% of your average monthly trading profits, paid out in a single instalment covering 3 months, and capped at £7,500 altogether. This is a temporary scheme, but it may be extended.

You can use the online tool  to find out if you’re eligible to make a claim.  You’ll need your Self Assessment Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR) number  and National Insurance number.

Further information, including the steps you need to take, who can claim, eligibility  and the online tool  can be found at GOV.UK
