Support for businesses - Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Self-employment income support scheme

The self-employment income support scheme supports self-employed individuals, including members of partnerships, who have lost income due to coronavirus (Covid-19).

The scheme allowed you to claim a first taxable grant. Applications for the first grant closed on 13 July 2020.

The second and final taxable grant is worth 70% of your average monthly trading profits, paid out in a single instalment covering three months’ worth of profits, and capped at £6,570 in total.

Applications for the second and final grant are now open. If you’re eligible and your business has been adversely affected on or after 14 July 2020, you must make your claim for the second grant on or before 19 October 2020.
