Details of fourth grant for the self-employed published

08 Mar 2021

HMRC has published details of the eligibility criteria for the fourth grant under the coronavirus (COVID-19) Self-employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS), which will cover the period February 2021 to April 2021.

At the 2021 Budget it was confirmed that the fourth SEISS grant will be set at 80% of three months' average trading profits, paid out in a single instalment, capped at £7,500 for those with a turnover reduction of 30% or more.

Alternately, it will be worth 30% of three months' average trading profits, capped at £2,850 for those with a turnover reduction of less than 30%.

To be eligible for the fourth grant, self-employed workers must have filed their 2019/20 tax return by midnight on 2 March 2021. This includes those who became self-employed in 2019/20, provided they have filed according to the deadline.

The remaining eligibility criteria are unchanged so applicants must either be currently trading but impacted by reduced demand, or be temporarily unable to trade due to COVID-19. They must also declare an intention to continue trading.

Further details on the fifth grant will be provided in due course.

In the UK the term accountant is not protected by law, therefore anyone can call themselves an accountant. Being an ACCA member firm means that you can have confidence that we are qualified to handle your finances, help your business grow and that we are regulated by the leading accountancy body in the world. The ACCA Qualification provides a wide-ranging skill-set, which means we are trained to provide both strategic and operational input and adapt quickly to your changing management accounting needs.

Unqualified persons who have trained for book-keeping or tax only simply aren't able to provide these other services as their skillset is too narrow.
