Support for self employed affected by coronavirus outbreak


Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced on 26th March 2020 the scheme to support UK self-employed who lost their income due to covid-19 outbreak.


This scheme will allow to claim a taxable grant worth 80% of your average trading profits over the last three years and up to a maximum of £2,500 per month. It will be available for the next 3 months. This may be extended if needed.


SELF-EMPLOYED OR PARTNERSHIPS ARE ELIGIBLE IF:

  • have submitted the Self Assessment tax return for the tax year 2018-19. Sadly, people who registered as self-employed on or after 6th April 2019 are not eligible

  • traded in the tax year 2019-20

  • are trading when you apply, or would be except for COVID-19

  • intend to continue to trade in the tax year 2020-21

  • have lost trading/partnership trading profits due to COVID-19

  • trading profit are less than £50,000 in 2018-19 or an average trading profit of less than £50,000 from 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19

  • more than half of their income in these periods must come from self-employment


The cash grant will be paid directly into the bank account, in one installment. Hopefully in the begging of June.
