Claimants must have traded in the 2018 to 2019 tax year and the 2019 to 2020 tax year to have been eligible for the grant.
Self Assessment tax returns for the 2018 to 2019 tax year must also have been submitted on or before April 23, 2020.
The Government criteria stated individuals must “be currently trading but are impacted by reduced demand due to coronavirus”.
Alternatively, individuals may also “have been trading but are temporarily unable to do so due to coronavirus”.
Claimants had to declare they intended to continue trading, and that they reasonably believed they will see a significant reduction in trading profits, to be eligible for the third SEISS grant.
The eligibility criteria for SEISS grant four has not been released yet.
