HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is reminding Self Assessment customers that they must declare COVID-19 payments in their tax return for the 2021 to 2022 tax year.

More than 2.9 million people claimed at least one Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) payment up to April 5 2022. These grants are taxable and should be declared on tax returns for the 2021 to 2022 tax year before the deadline on January 31 2023.

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

  • SEISS 4: April 22 2021 to  June 1 2021
  • SEISS 5: July 29 2021 to  September 30 2021

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

  • self-employed
  • in a partnership
  • a business

You can check which COVID-19 grants or payments you need to report to HMRC on GOV.UK. This applies to payments received during the 2021 to 2022 tax year.

Myrtle Lloyd, HMRC’s director general for customer services, said: “We want to help customers get their tax returns right, first time. We have videos and guidance available online to support you with your Self Assessment. Search ‘help with Self Assessment’ on GOV.UK to find out more.”

Help and support is available on GOV.UK for those completing their Self Assessment tax returns. There is also a series of videos on YouTube.

The free and secure HMRC app can be used to make Self Assessment payments. Alternative payment options include:

  • paying through PAYE tax code (subject to eligibility)
  • paying via online banking

Anyone who is unable to pay their tax bill in full can access the support and advice that is available on GOV.UK. HMRC may be able to help by arranging an affordable payment plan, known as a Time to pay. Customers should try to do this online, go to GOV.UK for more information.
