Although the Government was very generous with the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) during the COVID-19 pandemic, from the start HMRC informed us that SEISS grants were fully taxable and need to be declared on tax returns.

"Have you remembered to declare your COVID-19 grants?"

And other forms of support will need to be declared as well. Did you receive any Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) grants? If you are self-employed, in a partnership or a limited company, they should also be declared. Grants should also not be netted off against any relevant expenditure.

Although HMRC has extended the filing deadline to the end of February 2022, please remember that interest is still payable from the 31st of January. Time is short, so if you haven't filed your self-assessment tax return yet, please do get in touch.

Until next time ...
