self employed furlough scheme for permitted work 1 month 21 hours ago #251299

Hello everyone... is there any information regarding the self employed furlough scheme for those doing self employed work under the DWP permitted work scheme. I can, technically and legally earn a self employed income of up to £140 per week under this scheme without it effecting any other benefit just as long as I work no more than 16 hours per week. Earnings must be declared to both the DWP and HMRC via a tax return. I wondered if I could apply for cash from HMRC under the furlough scheme. Many thanks in advance.

I can't see why you can't apply although you will need to be quick as the scheme is currently due to end at the end of next month.

The following page suggests that you should have already been contacted by HMRC if eligible but there is a checker toll towards the bottom of the page.

Remember you cannot earn more than £140/week after tax and you cannot work for 16 or more hours a week.
