It’s certain that all APSI members will have been affected by Covid-19, and this includes shooting grounds as well as coaches. While many APSI members are self-employed there are others who are employed at shooting schools, grounds and gun shops. The latest info for employed APSI members may be found here:

Self-employed coaches need to have submitted accounts at least for 2019, preferably for the last three years. It is proposed that 80% of profits will be paid to the self-employed, although this is unlikely to happen until early June. Latest info may be found here:

Initially HMRC will contact the self-employed so until that happens nothing need be done. As always, be careful not to give out personal and bank details to scammers.
