Support available due to effects of the Coronavirus outbreak

Please click: Letter from Bim Afolami MP - support for businesses

Separate support package for the self-employed below:

Through the Self-Employed Income Support Scheme, the Government will:

  • Pay self-employed people across the whole UK who have been adversely affected by Coronavirus a grant worth 80 per cent of their average monthly profits over the last three years, up to 2,500 a month, for three months – this will be extended for longer if necessary. 
  • Make it simpler for self-employed people to get the financial support they need. Self-employed people who are eligible will be contacted by HMRC directly, asked to fill out a simple online form, and HMRC will pay the grant directly into their bank account. They expect people to access the scheme by the beginning of June.
  • Will ensure support reaches those self-employed people who are most in need of it. The scheme will only be open to those with trading profits up to 50,000, leaving 95 per cent of people who are majority self-employed eligible for the scheme. HMRC will also ask people to demonstrate that the majority of their income comes from self-employment, and, to minimise fraud, only those who are already in self-employment, and who have a tax return for 2019, will be able to apply.

  • This builds on the support that is already available to self-employed people:
  • Many will be able to access loans through the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loans Scheme. This scheme provides loans of up to 5 million, which will be interest free for twelve months.
  • It will be quicker and easier to access benefits. Those on contributory ESA will be able to claim from day 1, instead of day 8. They are relaxing the requirement for anyone to physically attend a job centre – everything can be done by phone or online.   
  • The minimum income floor will be suspended for twelve months – meaning self-employed people can now access, in full, Universal Credit at a rate that is equivalent to Statutory Sick Pay for employees.
  • Income tax self-assessment payments will be deferred for July until the end of January 2021.
