The government is increasing its support to the self-employed over the coming months and ensuring people get paid faster than previously planned, it was announced 2nd November 2020.

  • As SEISS grants are calculated over three months, the November boost to 80 per cent, along with the 40 per cent level of trading profits for December and January, increases the total level of the third grant to 55 per cent of trading profits. That means the maximum grant will increase to £5,160.
  • The online service for the next grant will be available from 30 November 2020. HMRC will provide full details about claiming and applications in guidance on GOV.UK in due course.
