HMRC is currently working through submitted taxpayer income self assessment tax returns to pull out the average of a sole trade’s profits over the last three years; this covers tax returns submitted for the dates 2016/17 through to 2018/19. Up to 80% of this calculation will be payable in June, for a total of three months (March, April and June) of up to £2,500 a month. Taxpayers cannot apply for this, as it is an automatic process, and can only wait for HMRC to get in touch regarding income support. The medium of contact is not disclosed but it likely that taxpayers will receive a postal letter rather than an email or a text.
