How do I access the Self-employment Income Support Scheme?

Last updated: 15 Mar 2021

If you are eligible for the Self-employment Income Support Scheme, HMRC will contact you to let you know you can apply for the grant.

Applications for the fourth grant are expected to open in late April, if you are eligible to apply you will be contacted by HMRC in mid-April. Note that you don’t have to have claimed the previous grants to claim the fourth grant.

Other sources of support are available for the self-employed as well, including business interruption loans and easier access to benefits like Universal Credit. See the links at the bottom of this page for more information on these sources of support.
