To all you self-employed people out there wondering if you were entitled to the Covid 19 Pandemic Unemployment Benefit of €350, there has been further clarification from Revenue on this.

Initially, they stated that your self-employed business must have ceased.

They now state “You may, if your trading income has collapsed to the extent that you are available to take up other full-time employment if it was offered to you, receive a payment of €350 per week for so long as you are available to take up other work”.

So make sure you fulfill this criteria if receiving this Pandemic Benefit.
