Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS)

The online service is now available for the SEISS. You will need to apply through your Government Gateway ID. HMRC have said if you cannot claim online, there will be an alternative way to claim, as yet we don’t know what this will be. If you are eligible, HMRC will give you a date from which you can complete your claim. We would advise you to use the Government Gateway to do this, using this online service is beneficial to access other tools such as pension forecasts and National Insurance contributions

As soon as you complete your claim you will be advised if it has been approved and you should receive your payment within 6 working days.
If you haven’t already checked your eligibility you can do so via this link https://www.tax.service.gov.uk/self-employment-support/enter-unique-taxpayer-reference
To complete your claim, you will need the following information:

  • Self-Assessment UTR 
  • National Insurance number 
  • Government Gateway user ID and password - if you do not have a user ID, you can create one when you check your eligibility online via the above link
  • bank account number and sort code you want the grant to be paid into 

You will also have to confirm to HMRC that your business has been adversely affected by coronavirus.
As always be vigilant, if you receive texts, calls or emails claiming to be from HMRC, offering financial help or a tax refund and asking you to click on a link or to give personal information, it is a scam. You should email it to phishing@hmrc.gov.uk and then delete it.
This process and the guidelines surrounding it are new and constantly evolving, we will continue to share relevant updates with you as information is released.
