If you're self-employed or a member of a partnership and have been adversely affected by coronavirus (COVID-19) use this scheme if you're eligible to claim the grant.
You should check if you can claim a grant through the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme, and find out when you’ll be able to make a claim.
You’ll need your:
UK bank details (only provide bank account details where a Bacs payment can be accepted) including:
You must make the claim yourself. Your tax agent or adviser must not claim on your behalf as this will trigger a fraud alert, and you will have to contact HMRC. This will cause a significant delay to you receiving your payment.
You’ll have to confirm to HMRC that your business has been adversely affected by coronavirus.
You should not claim the grant if you’re a limited company or operating a trade through a trust.
Online services may be slow during busy times. Check if there are any problems with this service.
HMRC will check claims and take appropriate action to withhold or recover payments found to be dishonest or inaccurate.
If you’re unable to claim online you should contact HMRC for help.
We will check your claim and pay your grant into your bank account in the next 6 working days. We will send an email when your payment is on its way.
