We have noticed that a lot of tax payers are missing out on claiming the 4th Self Employed grant and wanted to let everyone know not to miss out.
The Self Employed (SEISS) 4th and 5th grants were announced in March 2021 and are supposed to run to the end of Sept 2021.
The 4th grant (April to June) is the same criteria as the previous ones (up to max £7500 of 80% of profits).
While the 5th grant (July to Sept) will be banded with those who have seen a greater than 30% reduction in income eligible for 80% and those who have seen income fall less than 30% receiving a grant of only 30% (up to max £2,850).
The cut off date for eligibility was 2nd March 2021 so the 19/20 tax return had to be submitted by then. And both will take into account 2019/20 tax returns figures filed. You still need to qualify with over 50% of your income coming from self employment rather than other sources.
Many tax payers are hesitent because they are applying for mortages and remortgages where the lenders are unfairly saying to them they look unfavourably at the grants coming in. And this leads to tax payers being unfairly restricted on eligible grants or many other personal reasons such as divorce or employment.
