Self-Employment Support Scheme update
Eligible individuals will be able to apply for the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) from 13 May.
HMRC will begin contacting eligible individuals (by email, text and letter) to explain what they need to do to apply. Applications will open in tranches, using the self-employed Unique Tax Reference (UTR).
HMT has launched an online ‘eligibility checker’ at: www.tax.service.gov.uk/self-employment-support/enter-unique-taxpayer-reference. This will provide eligible self-employed individuals with a confirmed date from 13 May 2020 from which they will be able to apply for a grant.
