Support for self-employed


As announced by the Chancellor the Self-employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) will support self-employed individuals whose income has been negatively impacted by COVID-19. The scheme will provide a grant to self-employed individuals or partnerships, worth 80% of their profits up to a cap of £2,500 per month.

Here is a link to the latest information. We will keep revising this as more details are announced.
