Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, we need fairness across the board for all Self  Employed workers. The Government’s new Self-employment Income Support Scheme is invalid for many people.

How is it fair that only some, NOT ALL Self  Employed are entitled to 80% of their salary?

What about those newly self employed people who have worked for themselves for less than a year? (ie; do not have a 2018-19 self employed tax return). If you are able to prove income and tax payments or savings into a bank account since the start of self employment then this should be adequate!

What about those who thought they may be entitled to a small business grant, but are not as they don’t meet the criteria?
The offer of Universal Credit or Statutory Sick Pay of approximately £400 per month will NOT cover bills, food & mortgage for a family.

We need some fairness and parity here. Taking out a loan or just deferring payments will result in many families losing their homes, through no fault of their own.

Where mental health is a major issue in today’s society, lets have blanket cover for the Self Employed across the board.

Together we could change this. 

Please sign and share this petition with your Self Employed friends and family, thank you!
