SEISS Grant – update

5th November 2020

The Self-employed Income Support Scheme (SEISS) was recently amended to increase the level of financial support for November 2020 for those who are self-employed and eligible for the Grant. 

 The latest Grant period covers November 2020 to January 2021 and previously the Grant was set at 40% of average profits per month. 

 The Government have now amended this so that the Grant level for November 2020 is 80% which is on par with the Furlough scheme for employed individuals. 

 The Grants covering December 2020 and January 2021 will remain at 40% of average profits per month. 

 The SEISS Grant should be available for claims to be made from 30th November 2020 using the same claim process as before.
