Stuart Mosley No Comments

The Chancellor announced that help would be available to those who rely on self-employed income, particularly those who have made profits up to £50,000.

This will be also available to those who filed a tax return in 2019. This is to make sure that the assistance needed is provided to those who are self employed and to eliminate fraudsters seeking for help.

 

How do I apply for this scheme?

Those who benefit from this support will be contacted directly by the HMRC. The money will then be paid into your bank account. It is advised not to contact the HMRC directly as those that are eligble will be contacted in time.

As a result of COVID-19, applicants will need to prove that they have lost income by completing an online declaration form.
