Applications Open for Third Self-employed Support Grants

30 November 2020/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

The Government's coronavirus support scheme for the self-employed has opened for a third batch of claims. Individuals or members of partnerships whose business has been adversely affected by COVID-19 can now apply for a Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) grant worth 80% of their average monthly trading profits.

Yet again, millions are expected to benefit from the scheme, with payments being made in a single instalment covering three months' worth of profits and capped at £7,500 in total.

Applicants from across the UK will be eligible if their business has a new or continuing impact from coronavirus between 1 November 2020 and 29 January 2021. The applicant must either:

  • Be currently trading but impacted by reduced demand due to coronavirus.

  • Have been trading but temporarily unable to do so due to coronavirus.

They must also declare that they intend to continue trading and reasonably believe there will be a significant reduction in their trading profits.

The online service for the third grant is available. Applicants must make their claim on or before 29 January 2021.
