You will need your UTR and National insurance number and a government gateway account. You can find your UTR on the first page of your most recent tax return. If you don’t already have a government gateway account you can sign up at:

If you are eligible HMRC will then provide you with a date from which you can apply for your grant the earliest being 13 May.

The earliest payments will be made by 25 May, or within six working days of completing a claim.

The claims process is expected to be very simple, if you require any assistance or advice then please get in touch.
