Chancellor announces extensions to scheme helping self-employed
THE Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak has announced that the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme is being extended - with those eligible able to claim a second and final grant capped at £6,570.
In addition, the Chancellor also outlined further details on the extension of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, including improved flexibility to bring furloughed employees back part time in July, and a new taper requiring employers to contribute modestly to furloughed salaries from August.
Please note that both schemes are UK wide.
