We have been contacted by HMRC today to say they will start contacting people this week who may be eligible for the scheme.
HMRC will work out if you’re eligible and how much grant you may get but they have created an online tool where you can check eligibility in advance.
The online service to make the claim is not yet available but they have stated you will need your Government Gateway account to access this. If you have not already created a Government Gateway account this can be done as part of checking eligibility online.
