22nd March Email Reply Deadline - SEISS Grant

HMRC sent an email to a number of self-employed traders on the 26th February 2021. HMRC are asking the trader to prove that they are still trading. The tax-payer will need to reply to the email before they can claim the next two SEISS grants.

An example of the email being sent to tax-payers can be found here: https://www.tax.org.uk/sites/default/files/SEISS%20ceased%20traders%20pt2%20OTM%20email%20Final.pdf

Accountants and tax agents have not been copied in to the email. 

It is important to check your email account to see if you have received an email from HMRC, as if HMRC does not receive a response by Monday 22nd March 2021, the tax-payer will be blocked from receiving further SEISS grants.

You can contact the HMRC SEISS Helpline on 0800 024 1222 (Mon-Fri 8am to 4pm).
