SMA Consider our Response to Financial Assistance package for Freelance Members

Following the announcement from the Chancellor to offer 80% or proven income for freelance and self-employed workers, including our members concerns continue around the conditions of the offer and delay in any payment. We also are worried for new entrants: – working, well trained SMs – without even 1 year tax return to prove income (NOTE that you can be eligible for the Govt. support with a minimum of 1 year filed accounts) , and often without a contribution history for ESA and UC either. We will continue to fight for all members hit by the present crisis. Members should check their mail for regular SMAgenda information and advice updates.
