The online service for applications for the fourth Self-employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) grant is now open for claims.
The fourth grant is 80% of three months’ average trading profits, and can be claimed from late April 2021.
This fourth grant is capped at £7,500 and covers the period February to April 2021. The scheme has been extended to those who filed a 2019/20 self-assessment tax return prior to 3 March 2021.
In order to claim you must have been impacted by reduced activity, capacity and demand, or have been trading previously and are temporarily unable to do so. You must also intend to continue trading. All claims must be made on or before 1 June 2021.
Claimants require their Self Assessment Unique Taxpayer Reference, national insurance number, Government Gateway user ID and password and their UK bank details to make their claim.
You do not need to have claimed an earlier SEISS grant to qualify for this fourth grant. More details and a link to start an application for the fourth grant can be found here.
