Self-employed mechanics to receive more Coronavirus support?

Published:  23 March, 2020

 Self-employed mechanics could see Coronavirus government support increase, with MPs looking to ramp up support for the self-employed.

Those are self-employed at present are eligible for a much lower rate of support than employees. Under the existing terms announced on Friday, while employees are offered 80% of their salaries, limited to a maximum of £2,500 a month, the self-employed can only access £94.25 a week, via the Universal Credit system.

However, following its evidence session with the Chancellor of the Exchequer last week the Treasury Committee issued a call for evidence on the Government's Coronavirus financial package.

The Committee is planning to continue holding evidence sessions on the economic impact of Coronavirus. It has asked for this initial tranche of evidence to be submitted by 5pm today (Monday 23 March 2020).
