HMRC miscalculates coronavirus grants for self-employed HMRC has admitted that over 16,000 grants given to the self-employed to help them through the coronavirus crisis were either too high or should not have been paid out at all. Integrated Dispute Resolutions, a legal services firm which highlighted the error, called on HMRC to be transparent about how much the errors have cost. A spokesman for HMRC said: “The Self Employment Income Support Scheme has been delivered at unprecedented pace and has protected the livelihoods of 2.7m self-employed people in the UK. The vast majority of grants were paid correctly but in a very small number of cases not all the information held on a tax return was taken into account when calculating eligibility and grants.”
