Have any of you had a client apply for SEIS by phone? If so were they succesful? Any tips I can give my client
Two so far. Bearing in mind who they are - it must be easy.
I have written step by step instructions for mine who keeps asking "Can't you do it". I have said not - until I am blue in face.
He has to get Gateway as well. If they are so PC illiterate someone has to help
He's giving it a go tomorrow so maybe I can report back then - he's good at fish & chips though. Cant be skilled in everything
Client's can make a claim on this number 0800 024 1222. One told me it took them an hour. The other said 40 minutes.
I sent instructions to all clients on Monday last week. They must have been good because I am surprised at how few called. Not at all like the furlough scheme.
A few emailed me today to say they had received the grant today.
None of my surprisingly tech-minded clients have needed to claim by phone.
Just wanted to find out how well it was working
Folllowing my response yesterday my client (partnership) achieved it this morning. His command of English isnt that great and the lady at HMRC was Scottish so it took a bit of time to do him and his wife. One and a half hours actually but he has done it. Yeah!
