If you’re eligible based on your tax returns, HMRC will contact you in mid-July to give you a date that you can make your claim from. It will be given to you either by email, text message, letter or within the online service.
The online service to claim the fifth grant will be available from late July 2021. You must make your claim on or before 30 September 2021.
If you're a self-employed individual or a member of a partnership and have been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, you can apply for a taxable grant through the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS).
The amount of the fifth grant will be determined by how much your business turnover has been reduced.
The fifth grant will be worth:
80% of 3 months’ average trading profits, capped at £7,500, for those with a turnover reduced by 30% or more
30% of 3 months’ average trading profits, capped at £2,850, for those with a turnover reduced by less than 30%
