Government support for self-employed (Coronavirus) is insufficient & unfair. It will not cover ongoing business costs. Self-employed will not be able to cover costs, eg mortgages,vehicles,machinery,rents. Gov. must be realistic & realise without support self-employed “small businesses” will fail.
This petition requests the government treat self employed the same as employed staff & guarantee to fund 80% of their income up to £2,500 per month, based on historic tax returns. This will allow the self-employed sector to see this through & bounce back when it is over.
