I'v been a self employed bricklayer for 4 years now on sites. I have done my own self assessments. All my tax is up to date. Iv been told I'm not eligible for SEISS because Iv been filling out my return as employed.
Comes from the very first question. It asks. Have you worked for any business or agencies in the last year. I and I have now found out thousands more in construction have ticked yes. That flags us up as employed & not eligible for SEISS. We are now classed as employed but can't get furloughed cause we don't have an employer. Also can't get bounce back cause HMRC are telling the bank we are employed. At the beginning of lockdown I was a self employed bricklayer. Now I'm employed with out a employer.
