The CIPP’s future of the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) factsheet is now available

09 June 2020

The CIPP’s Policy and Research team has created a new factsheet to update payroll professionals on recent announcements relating to the future of the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS).

On 29 May 2020, Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced that a second and final grant would be made available to further support the self-employed, including members of partnerships, through the outbreak of coronavirus.

The factsheet provides an overview of the first grant offered under the scheme, and revisits the eligibility criteria, as this remains the same for both the first and second grant. The factsheet discusses what we know so far about the second SEISS grant, but further guidance on how it will operate is due to be published on 12 June 2020.

Also of interest is the role of agents in relation to the SEISS, and the factsheet provides key information in this area.

The factsheet relating to the Self-Employment Support Scheme is just the latest in a range of factsheets that the CIPP’s Policy and Research team has created in order to provide helpful guidance to payroll professionals about crucial areas of payroll. The idea is that the factsheets can be printed off and easily digested in a small amount of time to fit around the increasingly busy lives of payrollers.
