Self Employment Grant Calculator
We have provided an easy to use calculator designed to help you estimate the fourth grant that may be available to you under the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS). Scroll down to access our handy tool.
In the recent Budget, the Government announced that a fourth grant would be available under the Self-employment Income Support Scheme. This grant covers the period from February to April 2021, and provides continuing support to businesses during the coronavirus lockdown measures.
In addition to the calculator below, we have detailed all of the financial support available to the Self Employed here.
Are you eligible for the fourth SEISS grant?
In order to be eligible for the fourth grant under the Government’s Income Support Scheme you must:

Your trading profits must also be no more than £50,000 and more than half of your total income for either:
- the tax year 2019/20
