Self employed client commenced trading in 2019/20. Profits £8000. No other income. 19/20 return submitted July 2020. She seems to tick all the boxes to be eligible for SEISS 4. However, she has not heard anything from HMRC so she has not received a personal claim date (which I understood were to be issued in mid-April). There used to be an eligibility checker which agents could use but it seems to have been withdrawn.
Her turnover is significantly down and she wants to claim. Should I advise her to try and claim now or is there still time to hear from HMRC with a claim date? More particularly are there any instances of eligible traders slipping through the HMRC net?
