The DTA calling for action by the government
By DTA | 5th August 2020 | News
A number of our members who are self-employed people, such as directors who pay themselves in dividends, freelancers, and the newly self-employed do not qualify for the government's self-employment support package. The DTA have called for action by the government to provide financial support to these individuals plus those who have not qualified for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. In addition to this the DTA continue to request support for the dental technologist profession as a whole, who have been receiving very little work, or in many circumstances none at all due to the COVID-19 restrictions in place by the government, and this is not likely to change for the foreseeable future, yet the government financial support will end in October leaving Dental technologists in an extremely vulnerable position.
