HMRC updates process for obtaining Government Gateway ID

11 May 2020

HMRC has updated the process for acquiring a Government Gateway ID for its Self-employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS).

The Revenue stated that it has changed the process by which it allows taxpayers to create Government Gateway IDs in order to avoid delays. HMRC is advising individuals who need to create a Government Gateway ID to do so via the SEISS service to make sure the correct type of ID is generated.

Taxpayers who already have a Government Gateway ID will be able to use it to apply for an SEISS grant.

HMRC recently started contacting taxpayers who may be eligible for the SEISS. The SEISS claims service opens on 13 May and aims to 'help millions of self-employed people, covering a wide range of industries and jobs, whose livelihoods have been adversely affected by the coronavirus'.

HMRC stated that the SEISS claims process will be simple, and eligible taxpayers will have the money paid into their bank account by 25 May, or within six working days of completing a claim.
