Self Employment Allowance One Year Lower SE Income

Only 2019 SA Return, Lower SE Income than Employment upto cessation of employment

Didn't find your answer?

A friend went self employed in January 2019, having left employment in December 2018.

Employed earnings were £30,000 and self employed income was £12,000.

Is she entitled to assistance for self employed, if not (as i understand the SE income is well under 50% of the earnings that year) then what else can she do?

Thanks in advance

My understanding is no SEISS payment would be due.

But this is a good example of how some people who you would expect to be beneficiaries of SEISS will miss out despite 100% of their sub £50k income being from self employment since January 2019.

I'm assuming the business is continuing.

Bad luck, but nothing to claim imho.

One can only hope that these hard cases will be reviewed at some point in the next couple of months. There's already been a lot of mind-changing and "clarification".

Failing that, it's Universal Credit.
