Hello, I’m a self employed animator and some of my work has been cancelled but not all. So my income has taken a hit but I’m still earning. Is there any help for people like me? Thanks.April 12, 2020 at 14:29 #150683Sam SmithParticipant
I’m going to copy and paste our Keymaster Annie’s advice here:April 13, 2020 at 13:37 #150712Annie ThorpeKeymaster
Thanks, Sam. Yes, if you have a tax return submitted at least from the 2018/2019 tax year (and ideally the two years prior, but that’s not essential if you’ve only been self-employed for under 3 tax years), you could qualify. Your average profits (not turnover) during that period must be under £50,000/year for you to qualify, too.
The SEISS grant is given to self-employed people in June and you can keep working – you just have to have lost *some* income due to COVID-19 to qualify.
Hope that helps!
