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 fourth Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) grant to cover the period 1 February 2021 – 30 April 2021.
No definitive date has been set for this, although HMRC have indicated that they will be contacting taxpayers from mid-April, with the deadline for claims being 1 June 2021.

A fifth and, most likely, final grant will be issued later in the year to cover the period 1 May 2021 – 30 September 2021.
Burgess Hodgson will be contacting clients that we believe are eligible for the fourth grant. If you have any queries in the meantime please contact your usual tax adviser or email firstname.lastname@example.org
