Self-Employment Income Support Scheme: Update 4th & 5th Grants

The SEISS has now closed for claims on the 4th grant.

A fifth grant covering May 2021 to September 2021 will be open to claims from late July 2021. If you’re eligible based on your tax returns, HMRC will contact you in mid-July 2021 to give you a date that you can make your claim from.

The grant is taxable and will be paid out in a single instalment.

Guidance for claiming the grant will be available by the end of June 2021.
