What you need to know about applying for the fifth SEISS grant.
The fifth Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) grant can be claimed by individual taxpayers who are either self-employed or who are a member of a partnership.
Claims must be made by the taxpayer and not by an agent on their behalf; although they can seek assistance from an agent in completing their claim.
Have you paid your COVID19 deferred VAT?
One of the COVID19 relief schemes in 2020 was the 'VAT Payments Deferral Scheme'. This automatically deferred any VAT liabilities from VAT quarters falling due between 20 March 2020 and 30 June 2020. Any amounts due between these dates were given a deferral until 31 March 2021.
If you haven’t yet paid these outstanding liabilities, don't worry – all is not lost!
With these three options, you may still be able to avoid the 5% penalty or interest.Read more
