On a side note related to this thread so there it goes: There's a scam doing the rounds and it happened to me a few days ago. Someone from HMRC calls you stating your name is being used for fraudulent Covid help, you then panick, he them proceeds to ask more questions and have you confirm your personal details over the phone. he says if you don;t give him the details you'll get arrested. It's a dodgy call and because I didn;t fall for it he hang up on me. I'm in London and my caller ID showed me a Glasgow phone number.  Scammers on the loose. Be careful ladies.

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?

Afaik it's still to be decided.

It was my understanding the most recent SEISS will have to carry us through to April 2021.

No, I think we get another grant after this upcoming one. From November to January and then February to April, or something like that.

Also I think we can delay our tax bills again in Jan. As usual all the information is as clear as mud at the moment though

 ::) i will contact them, but well look like that i am not able to pay it right now. so when i ll get the third grant feb-may 2021 i am going to start pay it. LOL

seems that i can ask for it, more if we are on universal credit? seems logic, we need money to survive atm...i do not think that i am not only one to be like this??

Just an update on when you can actually apply online for the third payout. Worrying if we go on national lock down for a month from Monday.

The online service for the next grant will be available from 14 December 2020. HMRC will provide full details about claiming and applications in guidance on GOV.UK in due course.

To be eligible for the Grant Extension self-employed individuals, including members of partnerships, must:

have been previously eligible for the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme first and second grant (although they do not have to have claimed the previous grants)
declare that they intend to continue to trade and either:
are currently actively trading but are impacted by reduced demand due to coronavirus
were previously trading but are temporarily unable to do so due to coronavirus

Does anyone know what percentage we're getting this time? (assuming we're only going to get a percentage of the claim, I've heard 20% then 40% and I'm lost at this point).

I have a feeling that the 40% will be increased to 80% for the self-employment support scheme and can apply for it from 14th December. The furlough scheme was supposed to end 31st October but has been extended for another month as from today. Furlough is 80% - I think the self employment grant will have to match the 80%. It will cover 6 months and be paid in 2 instalments, Nov, Dec, Jan and then the 2nd one is February, March and April.

We only got 70% last time, did the employed still get 80% or did they get what we got? I can't remember  ???

Mirror might be right about Furlough going down to 70% TBH the whole year is a blur. I am sure Rushi Sunak will be clarifying help for the self-employed anytime soon.
It is a bit worrying when politicians are planning up until April next year for help with those who cannot work. It may well be next Spring before we see the beginning of the end. I think they know more than we do and don't want to cause panic in the country. All we know is that we cannot plan anything right now.  Martin Lewis knows more than the Government, so be sure to watch him each Thursday!!!
