HMRC has also confirmed the extension of the Self Employment Income Support Scheme Grant (SEISS).
For self-employed individuals eligible for SEISS and actively trading but facing reduced demand due to Covid-19, an initial taxable grant will be provided to cover three months’ worth of profits between November to end of January 2021. The initial lump sum is worth 20% of average monthly profits, up to a total of £1,875.
An additional second grant will be available to cover the period between February 2021 to end of April 2021. This may be adjusted to respond to changing circumstances.
