COVID-19 UPDATE FOR SELF-EMPLOYED & CIS SUBCONTRACTORS

There are no changes to report this morning, the 80% Net Pay support package has not yet been finalised.

As of now Universal credit and ESA along with Mortgage relief and Renter’s protection remain about the only Government assistance on offer.

Update to Universal Credit: you must apply as a couple if you live with a partner, even if you are not married. Your partner’s income may affect your eligibility.

For the time being construction sites are allowed to remain open, although we expect this to change soon.

You are legally allowed to work if you choose to and can remain more than 2 meters apart.

You also are not legally required to work, if you choose not to.

Most suppliers will be shutting soon, which will force closure in most cases.

For the time being, remain patient, sit tight, stay healthy and stay home.
