HMRC have recently released further details on the Grant due to the self employed. The process to follow is shown below. However you should register for the government gateway as soon as possible to avoid any delays for your claim.
You’ll only need your:
· Self-Assessment UTR
· National Insurance number
· Government Gateway user ID and password - if you do not have a user ID, you can create one when you check your eligibility online
· Bank account number and sort code that you want them to pay the grant into (only provide bank account details where a Bacs payment can be accepted)
You’ll have to confirm to HMRC that your business has been adversely affected by coronavirus.
If you claim the grant HMRC will treat this as confirmation you’re below the state aid limits.
HMRC will check claims and take appropriate action to withhold or recover payments found to be dishonest or inaccurate.
