We hope you’re well and staying safe during lockdown. We’ve been working hard to send off Kickstart Scheme applications. We have continuously worked with the DWP as they revise the scheme and release more information to the public.
The DWP has just updated their website following numerous conversations last week, that they will not be accepting sole trader companies for the Kickstart Scheme. They have announced they will be restricting applications to limited companies only.
We realise that this is a disappointment but we’re lobbying the Government for these rules to be changed and they have let us know that accepting sole traders may be a possibility for the future. However, until then, if you have applied with us as a sole trader, your application will be on hold.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
