Don’t miss the deadline to claim your self-employed grant!

The self-employed income support scheme was introduced on 13th May 2020 and to date claims in excess of £7.5 billion pounds have been made to over 2.6 million people.

However, please note that the deadline for the application of the 1st round of the grants will be 13th July 2020. The first round relates to a claim of 80% of average profits in the tax years 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19, (or shorter period if you did not trade throughout that three year period) up to a maximum of £2,500. There are restrictions regarding who can claim, most notably it is not available to those with average profits over £50,000 in the reference period.

This is not to be confused with the 2nd round of grants that will be available to claim in August 2020. That relates to the same basis period and is subject to the same restrictions as the 1st round. However the grant is restricted to 70% of the profits.

If you believe you are eligible and have not yet made your first claim make sure you do so in the not too distant future before it is too late!

What are the common traits of a successful business owner?

Having been in business myself now for almost 30 years I have seen the common traits of those business people who are successful and those who aren’t. It isn’t about having an extraordinary new idea which no one has thought about or tapping into new markets, although this is great if you can. It is more about doing the right things and doing them well.
