Self-employed workers whose livelihoods have been affected by Coronavirus can now claim a second payment of up to £6,570.

The scheme went live on 17 August and those eligible will be able to receive a final grant worth 70% of their average monthly trading profits.

Once you have made a claim, you can expect the money to come through within six working days.

Anyone whose self-employed business has been adversely affected by Coronavirus since 14 July is eligible for the scheme. Please head to to find out more or have a read of our stories ‘How circumstances can affect the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme’ and ‘New updates to the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme.’

As we mention in our story, there are a number of circumstances which can affect your claim. One of many is if you had a child and this has affected trading profits or total income which you reported for the tax year 2018/19. Head to to find out what to do in this situation.
