The main changes to qualifying criteria are:
- Annual turnover of more than £150,000 (reduced from £300,000)
- Have experienced a detriment of 30% to turnover as a result of public health restrictions (reduced from 50%)
- The requirement to be registered for GST has been removed
All changes have been backdated to the start of January 2021 andl cover the period to April 2021.
