Some new updates about the Self-employed Income Support Scheme (SEISS) have been released, including:

> HMRC’s online checker allows eligibility to be checked and for taxpayers contact details to be added – this is very important as the taxpayer must make the claim themselves once HMRC send an invitation.
> The online checker also allows taxpayers to create a government gateway account quickly too, this is one of the requirements to make a claim.
> The online checker tool advises the date on which a taxpayer may submit their claim between 13 and 18 May.

To read more about how to check your eligibility as well as what you need to make a claim, read our previous article on SEISS.
