HelloPlease, can you help me to understand what Rishi Sunak just said about help for self-employed?
So he said: "
HMRC will use the average trading profits from tax returns in 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19 to determine the size of the grant"
Please, what is this average trading profit? is this before tax taken or after tax? So for example if I had income from self employment around £2000 and income from employment around £17 000, then how much will I get? Please, can you see attached full calcuation?Also, my friend only started to work as self-employed last year in June 2019, is hes still elligible to get this support?Thank you
