Self-Employment Income Support Scheme – Fifth Grant

HMRC have announced they will be contacting eligible taxpayers, either by email or through the online service, to notify them that they can apply for the fifth Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) grant to cover the period 1 May 2021 – 30 September 2021.

Applications for the grant are open now, with the deadline for claims being 30 September 2021. Applications will be different from previous grants as the level of support depends on the reduction in turnover between 2020/21 and 2019/20.

For further information please see the following link: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/claim-a-grant-through-the-coronavirus-covid-19-self-employment-income-support-scheme

Currently no announcements concerning a sixth grant have been made, so the fifth grant may be the final one available.

Burgess Hodgson will be contacting clients that we believe are eligible for the fifth grant, and can review your turnover calculations. If you have any queries in the meantime please contact your usual tax adviser or email tax@burgesshodgson.co.uk
