If you’re self-employed or a member of a partnership and have been adversely affected by coronavirus (COVID-19), the scheme allowed a claim for a first taxable grant. Applications closed on 13 July 2020.
A second and final taxable grant is worth 70% of average monthly trading profits, paid out in a single instalment covering 3 months’ worth of profits, and capped at £6,570 in total.
Applications for the second and final grant are now open. If eligible and your business has been adversely affected on or after 14 July 2020, you must make your claim for the second grant on or before 19 October 2020.
You can make a claim for the second grant if you’re eligible, even if you did not make a claim for the first grant.
