Mine's on its way. I wonder if they'll stretch to a third grant in three months' time.
almost certainly at the rate this shitshow is going here, though they'll prob drop the percentage again

And they've managed to sneak out of paying for two months (the four quarterly payments stretch over a 14 month period) aside from reducing the grant to a mere half of the original.

I thought it was going to be November, but missed where it was only going to be half of the original (which would be 40%) - got a link for that?

And another in the New Year right?

i heard on the news in parliament it was back up to 80% of earnings for self-employed Nov-Jan. it was going to be 40% but it wasn't opening for applications for at least a week into Nov. anyway. watch this space

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/self-employment-income-support-scheme-grant-extension/self-employment-income-support-scheme-grant-extension

that page seems to contradict itself. looks like we have to wait a month regardless

If I'm understanding correctly, that page is saying that we'll get 80% for November, but for December & January it will be 40%; averaging to 55% for the quarter (53.3% actually, perhaps they're rounding it up).

It was only going to be 20% at one point then it was put back up more recently. I've been keeping up to date with the changes here:

As far as I can see from the HMRC site (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/self-employment-income-support-scheme-grant-extension/self-employment-income-support-scheme-grant-extension) it's now going to be 80% for the entire 6 months from November to April.

Quote
The extension will last for 6 months, from November 2020 to April 2021. Grants will be paid in 2 lump sum instalments each covering a 3 month period.

The third grant will cover a 3 month period from 1 November 2020 until 31 January 2021. The Government will provide a taxable grant calculated at 80% of 3 months average monthly trading profits, paid out in a single instalment and capped at £7,500 in total. This is an increase from the previously announced amount of 55%.

Of course I could be wrong and/or they may well change any or all of it at any point. Both are equally likely.

That's a relief. That's where it used to say that the 80% was for November only.

reminder this came out today (at least for me, they stagger the period people can apply). there's a lot more "ARE YOU SURE YOU REALLY NEED THIS, YOU SCROUNGER" than before, but even if I was audited for my few hundred i could easily prove that this pandemic and the shitty response from this wretched government means im massively out of pocket

Did mine on Tuesday. I noticed the tone on the website has changed from the previous two handouts, to "we are watching you", a la TV Licensing literature (that you get through the post if you don't have one) that treat you as a criminal scrounger first and as an honest claimant second.

Looks like you won't be able to claim the 4th grant (for February-April) until late April as they're going to assess your 20/21 tax return first. And the 5th (and final?) grant will be for May-September (5 months and measured in accordance with how bad 20/21 was for you in comparison to 19/20.

And let's not forget IR35 that affects 3-4 million self-employed, even if Rishi did in his speech. Pretty negligent of him, really.
