COVID-19 business grants

The Government has recently announced grant schemes to help businesses following the COVID-19 outbreak.

Small business grant

£10,000 grant available for ratepayers in receipt of small business relief. Rateable value of less than £15,000.

Retail grant

Grant available for ratepayers in receipt of retail relief (this includes properties falling within the recently announced extension to the scheme).  £10,000 for businesses with a rateable value of £15,000 or less, and £25,000 for businesses with a rateable value between £15,001 but less than £51,000.

If you are a business in receipt of small business and retail relief, only the small business grant is applicable. The grant will be payable if you were the ratepayer of the property and eligible for either small business or retail relief on the qualification date of 11 March 2020.
