Today The Claim A Grant Through The Self-employment Income Support Scheme Opens


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.

Before you start

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.

What you’ll need

You’ll need your:

  • Self Assessment Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR) - if you do not have this find out how to get your lost UTR
  • National Insurance number - if you do not have this find out how to get your lost National Insurance number
  • 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

How to claim

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.

After you’ve claimed

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.
