Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) update
The claims service for the fifth SEISS grant will open from late July. In the meantime, here is the latest SEISS update from HMRC.
Personal claim dates
Shortly HMRC will be contacting every customer who may be eligible for the fifth grant, to tell them their personal claim date. Customers can claim from this date up until the claims service closes on 30 September 2021.fforeign tr
Claims made before the personal claim date will not be processed. This is to ensure the system is fast and easy to use for everyone on their given date, and that telephone support continues to be available for those who need it most.
Preparing turnover figures
The majority of customers claiming the fifth SEISS grant will need to provide turnover figures in order to make a claim. The turnover figures will be used to compare the ‘pandemic year’ with a ‘reference period’.
Detailed instructions on how to prepare turnover for the 12-month period starting on any date from 1 to 6 April 2020 (the ‘pandemic year’), and where to find turnover for 2019-20 or 2018-19 (the ‘reference period’), can be found here: Claim a grant through the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
