Self-Assessment: Declare Your COVID-19 Payments

HMRC is reminding Self-Assessment taxpayers that they must declare COVID-19 payments in their tax return for the 2021-2022 tax year. More than 2.9 million people claimed at least one Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) payment up to 5 April 2022. These grants are taxable and need to be declared on tax returns for the 2021-2022 tax year before the deadline on 31 January 2023.

SEISS payments

The SEISS application and payment windows during the 2021-2022 tax year:

  • SEISS Four: 22 April 2021 to 1 June 2021
  • SEISS Five: 29 July 2021 to 30 September 2021

Other payments

SEISS is not the only COVID-19 support scheme that should be declared on tax returns. If you received other support payments during the 2021-2022 tax year, you may need to report this on your tax return if you are:

  • self-employed
  • in a partnership
  • a business
