Brits eligible for fourth self-employment grant have until end of today to apply

Self-employed workers have until today (June 1) to apply for the fourth coronavirus grant.

Millions of Brits who work for themselves would be eligible for the support.

People could receive up to £7,500 on the self-employment income support scheme.

The grant is there to help cover loss of earnings through February, March and April as a result of the pandemic.

But it only applies to Brits who are self-employed and they can claim 80% of their business profits.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak confirmed details of the scheme's latest instalment as part of his spring Budget.

You would have been contacted around mid-April by the government to tell you if you're eligible for the scheme.

Fourth grant applicants have had roughly one month to claim since applications opened at the end of April.

The third grant had a two-month window for applications since it opened on November 30 and had a deadline of January 29.

It is believed a total of 2.7 million self-employed Brits had access to receive the help.

And the fourth instalment of the scheme is set to take the total to more than 3.3 million.

To apply for the grant, you would have been contacted by the government via email, letter or within the online service.

If you're eligible based on your tax returns, HMRC will give you a date that you can start making your claim from.

But all claims must be made by 11:59pm on June 1, 2021.

To apply, you must head to the GOV.UK website and complete the grant application form.

It's the same for the following fifth grant that has been confirmed with the system opening for those eligible from July.

And this grant will be the final one available following the pandemic.

This will cover loss of income for June, July and August.
