Applications for the fifth Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) grant are now open and members should remind their clients of the eligibility criteria before they claim.

This grant will be based on the effect on turnover due to the pandemic and it is likely members will need to be more involved in the claim by providing the right information to clients.

Read ACCA’s updated guidance on claiming the grant.

You should also refer to ACCA’s guidance on Professional Conduct in Relation to Taxation, which includes a new factsheet on how to deal with tax returns that include claims for SEISS grants.
