To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, if he will extend the duration of the Coronavirus Self-Employment Income Support Scheme for self-employed people who cannot go out to work because they have been advised by the NHS to shield and not to leave home for 12 weeks as a result of an underlying health condition.
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what discussions he is having about extending the duration and expanding the scope of the Self Employed Income Support Scheme (SEISS); whether he will make it his policy to extend SEISS at least as long as the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme; and when he plans to make an announcement about the future of the SEISS.
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, when he plans to make an announcement on the next stage of the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme.
The Chancellor of the Exchequer announced an extension to the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme on 29 May.
Eligible individuals whose business is adversely affected by COVID-19 will be able to claim a second and final grant when the scheme reopens for further applications in August. Individuals will be able to claim a taxable grant worth 70 per cent of their average monthly trading profits, paid out in a single instalment covering three months’ worth of profits and capped at £6,570 in total.
There will be no further changes and no further extensions to the scheme, which continues to be one of the most generous in the world.
