We have been made aware that HMRC has emailed approximately 24,000 SEISS claimants asking them to confirm their business status.

If you have received this email and have not responded you need to do so today else you won’t be eligible to claim further SEISS grants.

To reiterate, the deadline is today, 20.11.2020.

This is the form you need to complete if you have received the email from HMRC:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/tell-hmrc-if-youve-stopped-trading-and-review-your-eligibility-for-the-self-employment-income-support-scheme

If you have not had an email then there is nothing to worry about (but I would check your junk email folder).

It appears they are contacting people who they think might have ceased to trade – so if this could be you it might be worth thoroughly checking your emails.

If you have any doubts or want to run anything by us please just get in touch.
