Petition Extend Self-Employment income support in alignment with the Job Retention scheme

We are looking for the government to extend the Self-Employment income support scheme until October so that it aligns with the Job Retention scheme laid out for employees.

More details

We are calling for fair and equal treatment for all employees paying into the taxation system. The Job Retention scheme is offering support to UK employees until October, where as the Self-Employed only benefit the end of August. This is an unfair system and leaves tax paying Self-Employed citizens feeling under appreciated and forgotten.
