Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, has announced that self-employed workers will be able to apply for a taxable grant worth 80% of their average earnings over the last three years.

As part of an emergency package of measures for the UK’s self-employed workers announced in tonight’s Downing Street briefing, Sunak revealed the Government's new ‘self-employed income support scheme’ will be capped at £2,500 a month, initially lasting for three months.

The Chancellor confirmed the scheme will be open to anyone with trading profits up to £50,000, and to minimise fraud will only be open to those who are already self-employed, and have a self-assessment tax return for 2019
