You’ve claimed the SEISS grant – What next?


You’ve claimed the COVID19 Self-Employed Income Support Scheme (SEISS) grant – What next?

Please note this article does not apply to employees or directors of their own limited company, only self-employed Sole-Traders / Partners.

By now most of our self-employed clients have successfully claimed the SEISS grant.  However, if you’re having any trouble making a claim or any doubts about a claim already made please don’t hesitate to get in touch. If you’re still to claim then you might find this 2 minute video helpful.

For those that have already claimed here are some important reminders

  • To claim you’ll have logged in using your Government Gateway User I.D. and password – be sure to keep a permanent note of these login details. They’ll be useful for the lifetime of your self-employment
  • Record keeping and reporting
    You should keep any evidence that your business has been adversely affected by coronavirus such as:
  • business accounts showing a reduction in turnover
  • confirmation of any coronavirus-related business loans you have received
  • dates your business had to close due to lockdown restrictions
  • dates you or your staff were unable to work due to coronavirus symptoms, shielding or caring responsibilities due to school closures
  • You will need to report the grant:

    The grant should be treated as income received on the day it’s paid for any Universal Credit claims or tax credit changes.
