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 scheme to claim a grant.

The scheme has been extended. If you were eligible for the first grant and can confirm to HMRC that your business has been adversely affected on or after 14 July 2020, you’ll be able to make a claim for a second and final grant from 17 August 2020.

The scheme allows you to claim a second and final taxable grant worth 70% of your average monthly trading profits, paid out in a single instalment covering 3 months’ worth of profits, and capped at £6,570 in total.

As with the first grant HMRC they contact you if you’re eligible.

They will work out your eligibility for the second grant in the same way as the first grant.
You can make a claim for the second grant if you’re eligible, even if you did not make a claim for the first grant.

If you want to claim the second and final grant you must make your claim on or before 19 October 2020.

To claim you’ll need:
• Government Gateway user ID and password - if you do not have a user ID, you can create one when you make your claim
• UK bank details (only provide bank account details where a Bacs payment can be accepted) including:
• bank account number
• sort code
• name on the account
• your address linked to your bank account
