Self Employed Support Scheme
- Those eligible under the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) will be able to claim a second and final grant in August. This grant will cover the three months from June to August and will be calculated on the same basis as the first grant, except that the amount will be calculated as 70% of average monthly trading profits instead of 80%, paid out in a single instalment, and capped at £6,570 in total.
- You can continue to apply for the first SEISS grant until 13 July, if you have not already done so, but you do not need to have applied for the first grant if you wish to apply for the second grant.
- Applications for the second grant will open in August and we expect the claim procedure will be the same as before.
- The eligibility criteria are the same for both grants, and individuals will need to confirm that their business has been adversely affected by coronavirus. Further guidance on the second grant will be published on Friday 12 June.
