What support is available for people during the lockdown?
The Government’s Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) will continue to provide financial support to eligible claimants until September 2021.
The fourth SEISS grant is still open for applications, but people need to apply on or before June 1, 2021.
The grant will cover the three-month period of February to April 2021 and will be worth 80 percent of three month’s average monthly trading profits, capped at £7,500 in total.
To get the fourth SEISS grant, claimants need to meet the eligibility criteria, which includes having traded in both 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 tax years.
