Travel restrictions

Travel restrictions
Following the emergence of yet another variant of the virus, the UK's travel corridors were suspended from 4am on 18 January 2021. Now, anyone arriving into England or Scotland from outside the UK, Ireland, Isle of Man or Channel Islands will need to self-isolate for 10 days and have a valid negative Covid-19 test taken in the three days prior to the travel commencing. Failure to provide proof of a valid negative test could mean a fine of £500 being imposed.
In other Covid-19 related news, HMRC has started writing to participants in the "eat out to help out" scheme that operated in August 2020 to check that claims were correct. Initially, this is an informal check but failure to respond to the letter within 60 days will probably lead to a formal compliance check, with penalties and interest charged where a claim is subsequently found to have been excessive.
