Hey 👋🏼

just wondered if anyone could give me abit more info or general idea 💡 on self employment grants given via the local council....

So I’ve been reading that people who are self employed have been getting close contact grants...

For instance I work in a salon (were the business owners have been given grants to keep the shop going for when we open) but as I’m self employed renting would I be entitled?
Do I go to my local council (home address) or do I go to my local council to were I work?
I may be wrong but I have seen so many people get this.
Thanks in advance if anyone could enlighten me as to what this means

it’s soo confusing isn’t it, I’ve searched on the internet aswell but not getting any closer to any info or how / where to apply!
I rent a room from the said salon, so would be great if I could get any additional help aswell as the se grant (still awaiting for date to be confirmed for the 4th one)

if I find anything out I’ll let you know ASAP

Your location shows as Nottingham so I just googled Nottingham City Council and their front page offered a C-19 Business support link. I haven't read it in full, and I don't fully know your business specifics but it's probably the best place to start. If you are not sure then email them and ask.

As an aside, it's entirely down to individual Councils and I got declined by mine.

Hi this close contact grant is for mobile services only 50% at least of your business has to be mobile in Scotland and you have to reside in Scotland too. If you think you’re eligible you only have until Tuesday 5pm to apply

If you are known to the tax man they should’ve contacted you last year and any additional grants would be checked through them xx

I would suggest work location as it's a business grant so should be provided by the council the business us located in.
If it was for you as a person it would be whichever council you live in

The SIESS grant from the Government, as an equivalent to furlough, for the Self Employed will be triggered by the Self Assessment tax return, but the discretionary Business support grants are offered by the individual local county councils and have to be applied for.

Hi
If you have submitted your self assessment for 2018/2019, HMRC would have sent you a invite letter for grant. I heard they are looking into giving more grants to self employed people. Check govt's website www.gov.uk for all the latest updates.
I hope this helps.
Best wishes x

You should have a rateable premise. If you are renting a room, you will need to have a document from your land lord to attach to show what you pay. If you don't then you can claim the self employment grant based on 80% of tax returns of your income.
