Self-Employed Income Support Scheme(SEISS)by Computare on 05/05/20
The UK Government has announced that the SEIS Scheme will be going live on Wednesday 13th May.
The most important point is that we are not permitted to make the claim on your behalf. We will be emailing our self-employed clients to make them aware that this scheme is becoming available, but we can't advise on whether individual cases will be eligible or otherwise.
HM Revenue and Customs has created a test to check whether you are eligible for the scheme. HMRC ELIGIBILITY CHECKER You will need to enter your ten digit Unique Tax Reference (UTR) number and your National Insurance number to run the check. You will then be told whether you qualify or not. If you do qualify then you will be given the date that you can start your claim and be invited to provide contact details to receive a reminder.
As part of the claim process you will need to provide your UTR, NI number, bank details, and register for the Government Gateway (if you have not already done so). You will need to confirm that your business has been adversely affected by Coronavirus. Please make sure that your contact details are up to date on the Government Gateway.
