November lockdown: Self-employed support extended

As well as extending the furlough scheme, the Government has also announced that the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme will be more generous.

The Scheme has already been extended into 2021. For eligible self-employed people, the third grant for November to January will be 80% of your average trading profits, up to a maximum of £7,500.

And to make sure you get this help quickly, the Government has also announced that you can submit your claim for the next grant from 30 November, instead of from 14 December.

Need more help?

The Government has extended loan schemes for small businesses up to the end of January 2021 and you’ll be able to ‘top up’ existing Bounce Back Loans if you need more money.
