I’m tempted to not even bother. Being self employed for less than a year means applying for what I’m entitled to may be more hassle than it’s worth. I’m still able to work you see, so I feel my efforts would be better placed there.

The SEISS scheme is a “don’t call us, we’ll call you” basis – so HMRC will simply tell you if you’re eligible, and you need to fill out a short online form if you are. It takes a lot of the hassle out of it – and as you can keep working, it’s worth applying if they say you’re eligible as you could get more than you expected!
