On Martin Lewis's programme last night the SEISS will be payable by end of August.  Though I hope it is quicker than that!  We cannot apply until the 17th August though.

HMRC made the first payment a month earlier than they said they would, so fingers crossed the second one will be early.

I believe they'll do like last time, ladies form an orderly queu. They'll give everyone a day and a time to apply during a 3 week period. That's why some got the money before last time.

I have a form phobia and nearly didn't claim.

I've just sat down to apply for the first Self Employed Grant and they made it really simple! Can't believe it! I chugged right through once I dug up my passport and forgotten passwords. I was shocked. All forms should be like this.
Thanks for the helpful comments and tips ladies. You don't have to give evidence of Corry effecting work, in this form, as I guess we were all at home in jammies eating chocolates as instructed.

Yeah like I'll let the human guineapigs have first dibbs at eating the food that's been sitting in those restaurant freezers for the past 4 months.

I just found a statement on gov.com about keeping evidence of how Corry's effected on your business. Everyone will show a reduction in business so I shouldn't think it's anything to worry about. If they even bother to ask the 66 million who were sat at home...

You should also keep any evidence that your business has been adversely affected by coronavirus such as:

    business accounts showing a reduction in turnover
    confirmation of any coronavirus-related business loans you have received
    dates your business had to close due to lockdown restrictions
    dates you or your staff were unable to work due to coronavirus symptoms, shielding or caring responsibilities due to school closures

The best evidence is what Adultwork and VS have done with advertising. Although I don't think anyone would expect to have to send a link to their profile  ???

How can we prove it otherwise? By sending in a screenshot of our diary with bookings?  :-\

I'll give CatBBW a rest, since she did it on the last page.

We don't need to prove anything.
The form is self-certifying.
There will be a box which says 'has your business been adversely affected by CV on or the since the 14th of July?' Tick 'Yes'.
Job done.

Is anyone paying their July tax?

I've had a read of HMRC's website and although it says you will be entitled to the second grant if you don't pay it says nothing about being entitled to the grant if you do pay it.

If I did pay the tax, I think I'd be giving them pretty much the amount I'm entitled to claim with my second grant.

None of us know what business is going to be like till January, so I think I'm going to hang on to my money until then. Of course, Hmrc recommend paying the tax this month if you can but of course they're going to say that  ::)

I pay by direct debit towards each bill soon after I received the first SEISS I calculated then paid the difference for the July bill. Once this month's DD goes out the balance is paid so the decision has already been made.

I am, because next year's payments are going to be horrific, so I'd like to get this one out of the way! I think if you expect your income to be low for the next 6 months it's not a bad idea to hold off though.

I pay tax in January don't think I've had a request yet as probably too early.

For self-employed there's usually a bill for July as well as January, or do you pay everything in January so July is covered?

Oh I didn't know that. I pay everything in January. I just copied what my accountant used to do. He explained about starting dates but I forgot why. Good to know these other options lol :)

Does anyone know when is the second COVID help available? I know it would be available after the 7th August but I haven;t got any emails from HMRC. They did send me a webminar to watch but haven't had the time.

Any updates on the second installment?

Thanks all.xx

Government website says can make a claim for second self-employed grant from 17th August.
