Claim Details For The Self-Employment Income Support Scheme Grant

In our previous article, we outlined HMRC’s new online eligibility checker for the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS). This determines whether an individual is eligible for the SEISS grant, and when they can apply.

Applications open on Wednesday 13 May, however, applications can only be made during your individual time slot as determined by the online eligibility checker.

In order to make your claim, the following information will be required:

  • Self-Assessment Unique Tax Payer Reference (UTR)
  • National Insurance Number
  • Bank Account Number and Sort Code
  • Government Gateway ID

To ensure there are no issues with receiving payment of the grant, only provide bank details for an account that can accept BACS Payments.

If you do not currently have a Government Gateway ID, you can create one ahead of your claim time slot. This can be done whilst you are checking your eligibility for the grant.

Whilst making your claim, you will have to confirm to HMRC that your business has been adversely affected by COVID-19. HMRC will tell you immediately if your claim has been approved. If so, the grant will be paid into the bank account you have specified within 6 working days.

The claim can only be made by the individual who is to be in receipt of the grant. Tax advisors/agents are unable to make the claim on behalf of their clients. However, if you require assistance in gathering the necessary information, please get in touch with your usual Taxpert.
