You can use this scheme if you’re self employed or a member of a partnership and have lost income due to coronavirus.

The scheme will allow you to claim a taxable grant worth 80% of your trading profits up to a maximum of £2,500 per month for the next 3 months. The scheme may be extended if needed.

How much you’ll get

If eligible, you will get a taxable grant which will be 80% of the average profits from the last three tax years (where applicable):

To work out the average HMRC will add together the total trading profit for the 3 tax years (where applicable) then divide by 3 (where applicable) and use this to calculate a monthly amount.

It will be up to a maximum of £2,500 per month for 3 months.

How to apply

You cannot apply for this scheme yet, HMRC will contact you if you are eligible for the scheme and invite you to apply online.
