4th SEISS Grant

The portal for making a claim for the fourth coronavirus SEISS grant opened at the end of April. Eligible businesses should have been contacted by HMRC to inform them of their personal claim date - if a business was not contacted by 30 April, they should contact HMRC using the SEISS helpline - 0800 024 1222.
The personal claim date is the earliest date the business can make a claim. These have been staggered to help reduce a bottleneck on the system. The portal will remain open until 1 June. The claimant will need to confirm they meet the criteria for the grant, which is as follows:
traded in the tax years 2019-20 and 2020-21;
are currently trading but are impacted by reduced demand due to coronavirus, or have been trading but are temporarily unable to do so due to the pandemic;
intend to continue to trade; and
reasonably believe there will be a significant reduction in their trading profits.
They must also have submitted their tax return for 2019-20 no later than 2 March - even if HMRC accepts they have a reasonable excuse for the late filing. If the 2019-20 tax return is subsequently amended, the claimant must notify HMRC if the change means that the entitlement to SEISS grant 4 is reduced by more than £100.
