The latest on financial support for self-employed workers was announced back in November covering the months up until January.
The Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) grant extension provides critical support to the self-employed in the form of two further grants, each available for three month periods covering November 2020 to April 2021.
The SEISS grant was introduced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak last year, in an effort to help self employed Brits stay on their feet while they were unable to work.
Whilst the scheme is available for most people who are self-employed, not all self-employed workers are eligible for the grant.
The grant is based on turnover submitted on 2016/2017, 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 tax returns as an average.
Therefore, anyone who became self-employed after April 6, 2019, will not have completed a tax return form for the qualifying years and so they will not be eligible to claim.
