Coronavirus Support for Self-Employed

Support is available for self-employed workers who may have been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

The Self-Employment Income Support Scheme allows self-employed workers to claim a grant if they have been adversely affected by coronavirus. 

The scheme will allow you to claim a taxable grant of 80% of your average monthly trading profits. This is paid out in a single instalment covering three months, and capped at £7,500 altogether. 

Visit the GOV.UK website to claim a self-employment income support grant.

You can also watch a video on YouTube about the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme.

You may be eligible for support through HMRC Time to Pay. This applies if you are self-employed or own a business and are concerned about not being able to pay your tax bills because of coronavirus.

Visit the GOV.UK website for advice if you have missed your tax bill.

HMRC is delivering a programme of videos and webinars on measures to support employers, employees and the self-employed through this period of disruption. 

Visit YouTube to watch the HMRC videos on coronavirus support.

Solent LEP (Local Enterprise Partnership)'s Growth Hub has a dedicated page with information for the self-employed.
