Another 11,000 people are receiving letters from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) questioning claims for self-employment support grants.
The UK's tax authority sent 24,000 similar letters last year to claimants who said they had stopped trading.
The Coronavirus Self-Employed Income Support Scheme (SEISS) has paid three grants so far during the crisis.
A total of £18.5bn has been paid to those whose businesses have been affected.
Other self-employed people have said they have been excluded from the same financial support.
