Important Update Self Employed Income Support Scheme
12 May 2020
We have been advised that some Northern Irish applicants for the Self Employed Income Support Scheme (SEISS) have been having difficulty registering for a Government Gateway User ID as part of the application process.
The reason is that HMRC are not recognising an Irish Passport or a Northern Irish Drivers Licence as valid forms of ID.
You can bypass this by making a manual claim over the phone from Wednesday 13th May. HMRC have confirmed that the number to call is 0800 024 1222.
