04/05/2020

 

Locum Optometrists and Locum Dispensing Opticians: Good news as HMRC will start contacting you if you may be eligible for the Self Employment Income Scheme (SEIS) from this week. SEIS is to come into play ahead of schedule qwith claims opening May 13th and the funds to be in your accounts by the end of the month and not mid June as previously expected.

From today (Monday 4 May), HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) will begin contacting customers who may be eligible for the government’s Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS).

Those who are eligible will be able to claim a taxable grant worth 80% of their average trading profits up to a maximum of £7,500 (equivalent to three months’ profits), paid in a single instalment.

HMRC is also inviting customers, or their agents, to go online and check their eligibility for SEISS.
