‘We have not left you behind, we all stand together’ – Rishi Sunak
Yesterday evening Rishi Sunak announced the long awaited measures to help the self-employed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here is a run down of what was announced:
Sunak admitted that coming up with a plan was ‘difficult’ as the self-employed are a ‘diverse population’ and wages differ immensely. He added that this “fair, targeted and deliverable” plan would help 95% of the people who earn the majority of their income via self-employment.
