Online tool for SEISS eligibility launches

May 4, 2020 | Accounting & Bookkeeping

HMRC’s online service for the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) is set to open on Wednesday, 13 May 2020, and they have released a tool to check your eligibility ahead of the scheme launching.

You can access the online tool here, and you will need:

  • Self Assessment Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR) number
  • National Insurance number

Once you have provided these details, the system will confirm whether or not you are eligible to claim. If you are eligible, they will give you the date that you’ll be able to make the claim from and will ask you to add your contact details. If you are not eligible, you are able to ask HMRC to review this, once you have used the online tool.
