Covid Study netpay_amount
Dear User support,
I would be grateful if you could confirm whether the self-employed have reported their SEISS payment (sempgovt) in their current earnings (netpay_amount).

These are not variables derived by us, but as reported by the respondent.Please take a look at the questionnaires for the exact wording of these questions.
As you will see sempgovt asks "Have you been told by HMRC that you are eligible for government support for the self-employed?" It asks about eligibility and not about the amount received. The next question asks about the net pay "What is your usual take-homepay/earnings now? Take-home pay is after tax, National Insurance and pension contributions have been deducted. Please include all jobs and self-employment activities."
Hope this helps. If I have misunderstood your question please let us know.
