06 Apr Help for Individuals
I do not know where you live or how affected your business is by the current issues. If you actually live in the Mid Sussex area may I also just let you know if any self employed person is suffering from coronavirus I would like to point you to our Council Tax Support Claim internet pages at https://www.midsussex.gov.uk/revsandbens/benefits/council-tax-support-housing-benefit-more-information/.
Also you may be entitled to Universal Credit – people can apply at https://www.midsussex.gov.uk/revsandbens/benefits/universal-credit/.
You will need to claim each and both which will be based on your income and circumstances, so without knowing your personal circumstances I would not know if you qualified or not. Both the DWP and Mid Sussex District Council have relaxed the Minimum Income Floor for self employed applicants.
Please note if you personally live in another Local Authority area you will have different way of claiming to that Council.
