Self-employed income support scheme (SEISS)

HMRC have recently confirmed the latest position regarding the SEISS

HMRC are aware of an increase in scam emails, calls and texts. Jim Harra has sent an email to registered self-employed people to inform them that if someone gets in touch claiming to be from HMRC, saying that financial help can be claimed or that a tax refund is owed, and asks them to click on a link or to give information such as their name, credit card or bank details, they should not respond. HMRC will never contact people out of the blue to ask for these details.
