The next instalment of the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) Grant has been brought forward from 14th December to 30th November
How will it work?
The SEISS Grant Extension provides support to the self-employed in the form of two grants, each available for three-month periods covering November to January and February to April.
Grants will be paid in two lump sum instalments each covering a three-month period.
The first grant will cover a three-month period from the start of November until the end of January. The UK government will provide a taxable grant covering 55% of average monthly trading profits, paid out in a single instalment covering three months’ profits, capped at £5,160 in total.
The second grant will cover a three-month period from the start of February until the end of April. The UK government will review the level of the second grant and set this in due course.
The grants are taxable income and subject to National Insurance contributions.
Who is eligible?
To be eligible for the scheme, self-employed individuals, including members of partnerships – must:
- have been previously eligible for the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme first and second grant (although they do not have to have claimed the previous grants)
- intend to continue to trade and either:
- are currently actively trading but are impacted by reduced demand due to coronavirus
- were previously trading but are temporarily unable to do so due to coronavirus.
