Protect yourself from scams

Protect yourself from scams

Stay vigilant about scams, which may mimic government messages as a way of appearing authentic. Search 'scams' on GOV.UK for information on how to recognise genuine HMRC contact. You can also forward suspicious emails claiming to be from HMRC to [email protected] and texts to 60599.

Third grant of the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS)

For self-employed clients, the third SEISS grant closes for claims on Friday 29 January. You must claim on or before this date.

Similar to the first and second SEISS grants, the third SEISS grant will also be subject to Income Tax and self-employed National Insurance. Alongside the first and second grants, the third SEISS grant should be reported on your 2020/21 Self Assessment tax returns (filing deadline 31 January 2022).

Where you also claim Universal Credit (UC), the Self-Employed Income Support Scheme grant should be reported to DWP in the month the grant is paid and may affect the amount of UC received.

Support for Business during the Covid-19 pandemic ​

Business rates - There will be a one-year business rates holiday for all businesses in England in the retail, hospitality and leisure sector. This change will apply automatically.

£25,000 cash grants for retail, hospitality and leisure - Businesses must have a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000. Local authorities will write to businesses that meet the criteria.

£10,000 grant for the smallest businesses - Any businesses currently eligible for Small Business Rate Relief (SBBR) or Rural Rate Relief will qualify. Apply for the emergency funding direct from their local Council.

Self-employed Income Support - The Government is to pay self-employed people across the UK a taxable grant worth 80% of their average monthly profit. This will be calculated from up to three years of tax filings (if available), and be capped at £2,500 per month. HMRC will contact eligible taxpayers and tell them how to apply. This will not be available until June 2020.

Tax and VAT bills delayed - Payment of key taxes will be automatically deferred to provide businesses with a further potential source of working capital. You may need to cancel direct debit instructions with your bank if direct debits have been set up to pay taxes.

HMRC Time to Pay service - Struggling businesses and self-employed people can ask HMRC for more time to settle tax bills. Decisions will be made case by case. Call the HMRC dedicated helpline on 0800 0159 559.

Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme - Individual businesses will be able to apply for loans up to a maximum of £5 million. The Government will pay the interest for 12 months and will guarantee 80% of the loan. Any company with a turnover of up to £45 million can apply.

Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme – The Government will cover 80% of the salaries of workers who remain on payroll but are temporarily not working during the coronavirus outbreak, up to a total of £2,500 a month. Employers will submit claims via an online portal.

Statutory sick pay - Any business with fewer than 250 employees will have the cost of providing 14 days of statutory sick pay (per employee) refunded by the government in full. It will also apply from day one rather than the usual day four of illness — even if individuals have no symptoms.

Universal Credit - Self-employed workers can claim income support if they need to self-isolate.

Hardship fund - A £500 million hardship fund is to be made available through local authorities.

For Isle of Wight Businesses

Pay it Forward Crowdfunder and match-funding by Solent LEP - If you are a micro or small business you could access to up to £2,000 in match funding through the Solent LEP’s Crowdfunder’s Pay it Forward scheme.

Posted on December 6, 2019 at 5:45 AM

With the Christmas preparations to do, the parties to go to and the the election next week it is a very busy time of year for most of us and the last thing we may be concerned about it is our self assessment tax return. However, 2019 is now drawing to a close and it will soon be January leaving us just one month to prepare our annual tax returns. Now is the time to get ahead for 2020! Contact Sam ([email protected]/ 01983 653145) to discuss how I can assist you to prepare your accounts and tax return, send me your accounts records, then sit back with your mince pie and sherry while they are prepared for you. January's only taxing task is to review and approve for submission!
