Those eligible have the money paid into their bank account within six working days of completing a claim and covering the impact of COVID-19 during the months of March, April and May.


Applications for the second grant will open on 17 August. This time individuals will be able to claim a second taxable grant worth 70% of their average monthly trading profits, paid out in a single instalment covering three months’ worth of profits, and capped at £6,570 in total.

The second SEISS will only be payable if the claimant’s business has been affected by COVID-19 from 14 July.
