I am also self-employed and completed the “Am I Eligible” for the Covid-19 self-employment grant.
Got turned down as the profit from property over the last 3 years (even though I got a £1 tax rebate for 2018-19) was more than the profit from self-employment for the last 3 years.
Grossly unfair as this “income from property” is what I use to live on (food shopping etc) as well as for paying the upkeep on the rental property and service/maintenance charges. Especially as the tenant is refusing to pay the rent now she is on a Periodic Tenancy as self isolating in Wales (the lockdown extended till 29th May at least) .
HMRC need to consider small portfolio private landlords “income from property” as self-employed income.
Perhaps in future I should invoice myself for the decorating, repairs, cleaning etc that I do at the property and put it under “self-employment”?????
