The self employed grant will be increased to 80% of eligible trading profits for November. This reverts to the previously announced 40% for December and January, as follows – quoted from the second document below:
- Today, the Government is announcing that we will provide even more generous support to the self-employed, and we are increasing the support to the self-employed from 40 per cent of trading profits to 80 per cent for November.
- As SEISS grants are calculated over 3 months, this increases the total level of the grant to 55 per cent of trading profits for November to January and the maximum grant will increase to £5,160.
The time for applications has been brought forward to 30 November
