Self-employed income support scheme

The Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) has been extended from 1 November to April 2021. If you’re a self-employed individual or partnership, you could get critical support in the form of two grants, each covering 3 months’ worth of monthly trading profits, up to 40% and capped at £3,750 in total.

The first grant will cover a three-month period from 1 November 2020 until 31 January 2021. The second grant will cover a three-month period from 1 February 2021 until 30 April 2021. HMRC will provide details on how to apply in due course. Find out the latest information and whether you might be eligible here.
