When will SEISS grant five be paid out? Key timings to be aware of

Eligible claimants will be able to apply for one final grant from the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) later this year. Those who wish to apply for the fifth grant should be aware that guidance for claiming the grant is expected to be rolled out at the end of June. The scheme opens again at the end of July for applications.

How much is the fifth SEISS grant worth?

The fifth SEISS grant is paid out in one lump sum and it is subject to tax.

Unlike the previous four SEISS grants, grant five will be determined based on the claimant’s turnover.

A claimant with a turnover reduction of 30 percent or more could get a grant worth 80 percent of three months’ average trading profits, capped at £7,500 in total.

A claimant with a turnover reduction of less than 30 percent could get a grant worth 30 percent of three months’ average trading profits, capped at £2,850.

Robert Hayton, UK president of Altus Group, said leisure and hospitality firms will need more support, with nightclubs in a particularly precarious situation.

He said: “The deviation from the roadmap means Covid support, particularly rates relief, should be revisited as the largest operators will essentially be returned to normal level of business rates in just over two weeks’ time with the cap on help.”

He added: “1,167 night clubs have been unable to open their doors since the onset of the pandemic and the right to appeal citing the pandemic is retrospectively being removed which is just wrong.”

PS5 UK stock live alerts, dates, timings for GAME, Currys, Very, Amazon and Argos restocks

March is shaping up to be a huge month for PS5 restocks in the UK, and it all begins at GAME.

The PS5 is tipped to be back in stock at GAME, Amazon, Argos, Currys and Very within the first week of March.

With such a huge week of restocks ahead, Express Online will be posting live PS5 stock alerts for interested customers.

We’ll keep this article updated with all the latest rumours, reports and live stock alerts as they come in, so keep checking back for more information.

If you really want to grab a PS5 in the next wave of restocks, then you should head to GAME, where the PlayStation 5 will reportedly be back in stock between 9am GMT and 12pm GMT on the morning of March 2.

“GAME release between 9 and 12 Tomorrow – Guest checkout with autofill saves 2nd queue,” reads a PS5 UK Stock – Instant Updates tweet. “Currys and Argos this week- add wishlist using app in prep for drop.”

Meanwhile, a separate PS5 Stock checker site believes that the GAME restock will take place at 9.45am GMT. The link below will take you to the GAME website, while the YouTube video embed will make a loud noise the second stock is available.


In addition to bots and scalpers, another reason why the console is so hard to come by is a lack of components.

Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki recently said that the manufacturing of PS5 consoles has taken a hit in the last few months. This is due to a lack of semiconductors and other components.

“It is difficult for us to increase production of the PS5 amid the shortage of semiconductors and other components,” Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki explained.

“We have not been able to fully meet the high level of demand from customers [but] we continue to do everything in our power to ship as many units as possible to customers who are waiting for a PS5.”

Fingers crossed Sony rectifies the problem sooner rather than later, especially with some of the games expected to drop later in 2021.

Game PS5 stock coming soon: UK PlayStation 5 restock news and timings

Game is reportedly getting a PS5 restock as early as tomorrow, with PlayStation 5 stock tracker account @PS5Instant claiming that a UK stock drop could be happening in the morning.

This would make Game one of the first UK retailers to release new PlayStation 5 stock during March 2021.

And plenty more is expected to follow, with the likes of Currys, Amazon and Argos also rumoured to be offering early drops.

From what has been shared so far, Game will be dropping PS5 stock early in the morning on Tuesday, March 2.

And as mentioned above, Game won’t be the only retailer to offer more stock this week in the UK.

Tuesday should see Game restock the PS5 between 9am and 12pm, and console hunters have been warned to be ready early.

Tweeting on Friday, February 26 the @PS5Instant Twitter posted: “March is going to huge for PS5 stock. We’re expecting two major shipments to big retailers. Amazon, Argos, Currys and Very are dropping the first week of March and the end of March! Don’t give in to the scalpers, we’re so close.”

The account went on to add: “or those asking. GAME drop will occur between 9am and Noon on the 2nd March. We’ll be live streaming it on YouTube, due to the success the stream had this week. A siren will go on upon drop.

“GAME is contacting people who had PS5s orders cancelled before releasing the leftovers, stock will drop next week.

“Argos and Amazon due to drop next week. Second GAME can drop anytime from 9am to 2pm this week.”

As ever, these reported stock drops have to be taken with a pinch of salt, as they come from unofficial sources.

However, many stock tracker accounts have proven reliable, even if there have been delays.

And with more retailers joining the list of PS5 suppliers in March, things are going to get busy.

Many stock tracker accounts have backed March to offer the best chance at buying a next-gen console since 2021 started.

According to PS5 Instant, the coming weeks will mark the “biggest” PS5 restock yet for “all retailers” in the UK.

Earlier this week, the account tweeted: “March restock will be the biggest yet for all retailers.”

And in a further boost, @PS5Instant went on to say that the first week and last week of March will bring with it plenty of opportunities to purchase a PS5.

It’s unclear what numbers are being discussed here, and it will be interesting to see how long the next few PlayStation restock events last.

Most being offered by Game and Argos have led to websites crashing and consoles being sold out within minutes.

Argos might have had one of the longest phases of allowing customers to buy a PlayStation 5, but this might have had more to do with technical difficulties and the stock dropping in the early hours of the morning.
