Self-employment: Reporting income from self-employment

Claimants must report their self-employed earnings for the assessment period up to 7 days before and 14 days after the end of the assessment period. It is likely that this will be online reporting although there should be other options for those who cannot report online.

Reporting self-employed earnings on time is very important. Failure to do so can lead to UC payment being initially suspended and then terminated if earnings are still not reported within a calendar month of the cut-off date.
