Help for the Self Employed - Information from MENTA:

The government is setting up a scheme which will be called the Coronavirus Self-employment Income Support Scheme which will be open to those who were trading in the last financial year, still trading now, and planning to continue doing so this year.

If a self-employed person or partnership has suffered a loss in income, a taxable grant will be paid, worth 80% of their profits up to a cap of £2,500 per month. Initially, this will be available for three months in one lump-sum payment and will start to be paid from the beginning of June.

To be eligible more than half of a claimant's income needs to be from self-employment. The scheme will be open to those with a trading profit of less than £50,000 in 2018-19, or an average trading profit of less than £50,000 from 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19.

The claim process will be as follows:

· Applicants will not need to make a claim for support as HMRC will use existing information to identify those eligible and will invite application

· The application will require applicants to confirm that they meet the eligibility requirements

· It will be paid straight into a bank account, which eligible taxpayers will need to confirm on their application form

· Applicants do not need to contact HMRC now if they are eligible HMRC will contact them directly.

More advice is available from AccountAbility-plus here or via our 121 Business Service: 121@menta.org.uk

Updated Guidance on the Grant Fund Scheme:

The Government has produced updated guidance on the Grant Fund Scheme which provides further detail on how this will operate. You can view it here.

This is the third version of the guidance to have been produced in the last two weeks which highlights both how quickly things are changing and the need to keep checking on updates of all the guidance produced to make sure you are operating from the most recent version.
