Fourth SEISS grant deadline – 1 June 2021

28 May 2021

Anyone intending to make a claim for the fourth grant under the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) must ensure that they do so by no later than 1 June 2021. Submissions can be made here.

Individuals must check that they meet all the eligibility criteria prior to making a claim, and will require certain information, as follows:

  • Their Self-Assessment Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR)
  • Their National Insurance (NI) number
  • Their Government Gateway user ID and password
  • Their UK bank details – to include the account number, sort code, name on the account and address linked to the account

There is a reminder that individuals must submit claims themselves and must not request that a tax agent or adviser does this on their behalf, as it will trigger a fraud alert, which may delay payment of the grant.

HMRC will check claims and pay the grant into nominated bank accounts within six working days.
