COVID-19 ACT NOW! SEISS am I eligible for this Grant?
The government department is contacting people who may qualify to apply for the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme.
Applications open on Wednesday, May 13, with payments to reach bank accounts by May 25 or six working days after the claim is made.
The money will support individuals or business partners whose trade has been impacted by coronavirus, and the majority of workers who get at least half of their income from self employment will be eligible.
To qualify, individuals must have annual profits of no more than £50,000 and have filed a self assessment tax return.
