HMRC Is Confused

Money Saving Expert reports that an HMRC webinar has told confused potential claimants that the second Self-Employment Income Support Scheme grant applied to June, July and August - even though its new rule means you actually need to declare your business was impacted by coronavirus on or after 14 July in order to qualify.

In the event held last Thursday (18 June), which HMRC billed as being run by experts who could answer questions about the support available, participants were repeatedly told that the second grant covers June, July and August. 

HMRC has since apologised and confirmed this info was in fact wrong. But the incident is a classic example of the confusion that surrounds HMRC's bizarre new rule - since it was published two weeks ago, lots of MoneySavers have said they've been struggling to understand its logic, and now even HMRC's own webinars seem confused.

Tax does have to be taxing.
