Check if you can claim a grant through the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme

The government has launched the website today to check if you are eligible for the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme.

At this point tax payers can check whether or not they are eligible for the support.  If yes, you will be given a date as to when the claim can be made, the earliest dates being 13th May 2020 onwards.

The link to check eligibility is here:

More info on the scheme is here:

In order to make the claim, you will need to have a Government Gateway ID.  If you do not have one you will be asked to create one when you follow the link.  You will need additonal information such as a driving licence photocard or passport for HMRC to check your identity against.  Alternatively, HMRC may be able to confirm your identity by asking a series of questions based upon your bank/credit card activity.
