Self-employment income support scheme opens for second round of applications

17 August 2020

UKFT, the trade body representing retail drycleaners and wetcleaners, is advising its textile care members that the Covid-19 Self-Employment Income Support Scheme is now open for the second round of applications. To be eligible:

  • More than half of a claimant’s income needs to come from self-employment.
  • The claimant must have had a trading profit of less than £50,000 in 2018/19, or an average trading profit of less than £50,000 from 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19.
  • The second grant will cover 70% of the applicant’s average monthly trading profits. It will be made in a single payment, covering three months and capped at £2,190 a month, or £6,570 in total.
  • Applicants will need to confirm their business has been affected by the virus on or after 14 July, but do not need to have taken the first grant to be eligible for the second.
