Surely we’re expected to carry on working as well then?
Although I’ve had hotels cancel on me already this week. So maybe there won’t be any hope at all?! Uuuuhh

The furlough continuation has been made on the basis employees are back working, on limited- less-than-precovid-hours. SEISS is supposed to be the self-employed equivalent, the implication is that yes we are assumed or supposed to be working.

I went to look at BBC news website, article about support for self-employed states 20%.

It's actually 22%, not 20 %  ;D . massive difference (insert sarcastic tone here).

Was reading whilst eating my tea and talking, my fault for not concentrating.

Gone back to article which states 20% I'm guessing the article isn't correct.

That's the people who can work from home, how about the whole hospitality industry, manufacturing, retail, travel, medical, beauty and long etc... who can't work from home? Those of us who depend on human interaction? We are not being able to support ourselves because we have no clients as the government keeps encouraging the population to "work from home". So we have the government literally ruining our businesses for encouraging people to stay at home and then not helping us (dear Boris: 22% of our earnings is definately not going to save us). i don't think Boris is reading this but you never know. ;D

I read it on the Guardian today, but knowing how prone to drama they are love to exagerate everything I wouldn;t be surprised it's actually 20%.

22 percent of worker pay is the Guardian headline, I think that means 22 percent of [all] workers pay rather than 22 per cent for every individual. Further down there's mention of the extension of Self-employed scheme without any figures.

Just applied for my Covid part 2 which was quick and easy to do as Part 1. I hate forms but it was painless. So waiting to get confirmation. Won't be much but it all helps to keep us in champagne and chocolates. ;D

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.

2. What the grant extension covers
The extension will provide two grants and will last for six months, from November 2020 to April 2021. Grants will be paid in two lump sum instalments each covering a three-month period.

The first grant will cover a three-month period from the start of November until the end of January. HMRC will provide a taxable grant covering 20 per cent of average monthly trading profits, paid out in a single instalment covering 3 months’ worth of profits, and capped at £1,875 in total.

HMRC are providing broadly the same level of support for the self-employed as is being provided for employees through the Job Support scheme.

The second grant will cover a three-month period from the start of February until the end of April. HMRC will review the level of the second grant and set this in due course.

The grants are subject to Income Tax and National Insurance Contributions.

So basically just a small percentage towards what your normal income would have been.

Just seen that SE grants are going to be increased from 20% to 40%  :) It's not that much but it's better than nothing  :)

That’s great. Does anyone know roughly when we can apply for the third one? And is there going to be a fourth at 40% too or is that to still be decided?
