Don’t Forget to Declare COVID-19 Grants

Self-Assessment: don’t forget to declare COVID-19 Grants

HMRC is reminding taxpayers that they must declare COVID-19 payments in their tax return for the 2021 to 2022 tax year.

These grants are taxable and should be declared on tax returns for the 2021 to 2022 tax year before the deadline on 31st January 2023.

The Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) application and payment windows during the 2021 to 2022 tax year were:

  • SEISS 4: 22nd April 2021 to 1st June 2021
  • SEISS 5: 29th July 2021 to 30th September 2021

SEISS is not the only COVID-19 support scheme that should be declared on tax returns. If taxpayers received other support payments during the 2021 to 2022 tax year, they may need to report this on their tax return if they are:

  • Self-employed
  • In a partnership
  • A business
