Help those that are in self employment with less than 3 years income & tax

Petition Details

This furlough scheme & now the 3rd lockdown.. People who have been employed for 3 years with proof of income & tax were given the first 2 grants & are entitled to any other grant that they produce during this pandemic.

Additional Information

these grants will need to be paid back & taxes will rise which means the people who have not received them or were not entitled to them will have to pay more tax to make up for the money owed Please explain to me how that is fair? if we can’t work because of the pandemic we lose money that’s what the grant scheme is for to help those who struggle during this time but where is our help? But people who have let’s say been self employed for a year or so are not entitled to anything. Simply unfair
