    If you're self-employed and eligible you can claim from 8am 15th May

    https://www.gov.uk/guidance/claim-a...ovid-19-self-employment-income-support-scheme

    You can put in your unique tax payer reference and NI number into this tool to find out if you are

    https://www.tax.service.gov.uk/self-employment-support/enter-unique-taxpayer-reference

    "The scheme will allow you to claim a taxable grant of 80% of your average monthly trading profits, paid out in a single instalment covering 3 months, and capped at £7,500 altogether. This is a temporary scheme, but it may be extended."

    Not sure if this is any better or worse for you than if you're already claiming income support or universal credit or how that would effect such claims

    ^ I think part of the problem with the two above is if you had enough savings you weren't eligible for them, which didn't seem particularly fair in a unique situation like this that your savings get drained

    My understanding is that it will be available from 13th May 2020 but that claims will be staggered. HMRC will tell you the date you’ll be able to make a claim.

    Ohh I see, I thought the 15th was a general date, was that unique to me?

    Yes, that's your date. I'm the 14th. Not sure how many dates there will be.

    Thanks for posting this to alert those eligible for it! And yes, it's staggered as when I checked yesterday it said I can apply from 16th May.
