Statutory Self-Employment Pay proposed amendment to the Coronavirus Bill
There was a proposal made to the Coronavirus Bill for the payment of Statutory Self-Employment Pay by the House of Commons Public Bill Committee and an article relating to this is doing the rounds.
This is a proposed amendment only and has not been agreed.
In addition, most commentators believe that this will not make it into the final act, at least not in its proposed form.
Unfortunately, these days, snippets of information find there way onto the internet and social media which are, at best, proposals and, at worst, fake news. It is important to ensure that the information comes from official sources, which in this instance will be the government website www.gov.uk
