Amnesty for ineligible COVID-19 financial support payments

Wed, 06 Jul 2022

Any individuals or businesses who have received financial support through the coronavirus schemes, which they were ineligible for, will have 20 working days to come forward to arrange repayment.

The period of amnesty is to allow businesses and self-employed individuals to review the claims they have made and ensure they were fully entitled to the funds.

Following this 20 day period a formal review of all claims, from any of the coronavirus support schemes, will take place.

The schemes that are being reviewed after the amnesty period:

  • Business Premises Support Scheme
  • Circuit Break Lockdown Schemes
  • Coronavirus Business Support Scheme – All variations
  • Coronavirus Recovery Scheme
  • December Disruption Scheme
  • Hospitality Transition Support Scheme
  • Salary Support Scheme
  • Strategic Capacity Scheme
  • Winter Disruption Scheme

Isle of Man Government is offering those who believe they may have mistakenly claimed support the opportunity to come forward and return funds without any further action being taken.

The amnesty period will begin today and will end on Thursday 4 August 2022.

After the 20 working days has passed, any claimants who are found to have fraudulently claimed financial support may be subject to possible sanctions.
