3rd SEISS Grant Question :
I’m very confused as to how / if I meet the criteria for SEISS Grant 3.
For example :
What period do I compare my 3 month profits for Nov / Dec / Jan to..?
Do I compare this to my average 3 months profits for tax years 2017 / 18 / 19 as previously used?
Or should I be comparing to my average profits for Aug / Sept / Oct 2020 ?

I was refused the grant in March and July because when I filed in my tax return for 2018-2019 I had a glitch in my laptop so done it on paper and accidentally filled in the other monies earned page instead of self employed page and did not mean the mistake .so I phoned them and asked what I could do about this .they said fill in a amended tax return for that tax year and right on it amended on each page so I did this and they still refused to give me the grant they said I was to late sending in the amended form.surely they cant do this as all my tax for the previous years before is all up to date I think this is terrible for such a small mistake is there anything I can do because I reckon I have lost about £18.000 not getting the 3grants please can you help.thankfully

The grant is based on the 2018/2019 self-assessment tax return.
Why is it not possible to make a claim based on the 2019/2020 tax year?

The grant is based on the 2018/2019 self-assessment tax return.
Why is it not possible to make a claim based on the 2019/2020 tax year?

// when this must apply:
1. YOU traded in the tax year 2018 to 2019 and submitted your Self Assessment tax return on or before 23 April 2020 for that year
2. YOU traded in the tax year 2019 to 2020

Is it not strange that the "past 3 years" means:
2018 - 2019, 2017 - 2018, 2016 - 2017. instead of
2019 - 2020, 2018 - 2019, 2017 - 2018

Can someone on here please tell me when I should receive my second SEISS payment? Also, do I have to reapply, or does it come through 'automatically, as I've been led to believe?
Any straightforward help would be most welcome.

I am self employed and my business as a sole trader is about to grind to a near halt, I have been offered employment under PAYE but will be earning less than if i was consistently working as a sole trader, i still intend to keep my self employment going with the little custom i have left in the hope of building it back up, if i take employment will i still be able to apply for the grant?
