I have just tried the HMRC 'tool' for self-employed to test their eligibility. I have a client that is a self-employed fitness instructor. The 'tool' says she is eligible to claim the grant. However, many fitness instructors (including my client) have managed to maintain quite a healthy business by doing classes on-line either 1 to 1 or in 'Zoom' type forums. Does anyone know how their earnings during the 'lockdown' period will impact on their ability to claim the grant or will it be down to them declaring they had some earnings albeit lower than usual? Just as an aside, when I typed in my UTR & NI the tool promptly told me I wasn't eligible which must be driven by the 'nature of my business' box on the self-employed page!
