We are collecting resources to help you keep your small business going whilst working from home. Please add your useful resources in the comments and we will keep updating this.
Do you need to claim self-employed small business benefits?
Here is a link to current advice on how to claim SSP from day one or Employment Support Allowance or Universal credit.
There is a helpline for self-employed people and business owners 0300 456 3565.
You may also be able to defer any tax payments that are due – think PAYE, VAT, corporation tax and part payments of self-employed tax.
Let us know how you get on. Please comment with any additional and helpful resources you have found.
