This will depend on your business’s financial year – for example, if your year ends in October, provide your turnover from October 2018 to October 2019. If you’ve not been trading a full year, use the turnover you generated up to 31 March 2020 which we’ll consider on a pro rata basis.
We require the cash turnover to calculate the percentage of your income from legal aid payments. We also use this percentage net of the percentage of other Covid support from any gross payments due.
Evidence of your cash turnover will be required retrospectively to substantiate your claim. Depending on your business structure that may require management accounts signed by an independent auditor or accountant.
It will be a term in the grant agreement with Scottish Government that you will be required to produce vouching.
Please note that we will use your bank account details that we use for legal aid payments and completion of the application includes consent to pass those details to Scottish Government to use for the purposes of making any payment.
