There has been a huge raft of measures announced by the government over the last few days and weeks, in response to the COVID-19 virus.

There is one page which succinctly shows all the various business support available and we would urge you to refer to this page.

There are some grey areas still, notably those who are newly self employed or have minimal self employed trading history. Based on the Chancellor’s response to Robert Preston’s question during yesterday’s live broadcast, we believe that for those who fall through the net, perhaps the best place to go for help is to see if you can claim universale credits.

But before you do that, please do access all the information available on the gov.uk website.
