Restrictions support grants for businesses

Restart grant

To support the recovery of the high street as Government trading restrictions are relaxed, the Chancellor announced the one-off payment 'Restart Grant'. This grant will replace the local restrictions support grant from April 2021 onwards.

We are awaiting further details of the grant but are working on the basis that it will be made available to qualifying High Street, Hospitality and Leisure businesses from w/c 12th April 2021:

The awards are understood to be as follows:

  • Non-essential retail businesses with a rateable value of £15,000 or less will receive a one-off grant of £2,667
  • Non-essential retail businesses with a rateable value over £15,000 and less than £51,000, will receive a one-off grant of £4,000.
  • Non-essential retail businesses with a rateable value of £51,000 or above, will receive a one-off grant of £6,000.  
  • Qualifying Hospitality and Leisure properties with a rateable value of £15,000 or less, will receive a one-off grant of £8,000.
  • Qualifying Hospitality and Leisure properties with a rateable value over £15,000 and less than £51,000, will receive a one-off grant of £12,000.
  • Qualifying Hospitality and Leisure properties with a rateable value of £51,000 or above, will receive a one-off grant of £18,000.

We will also continue to offer discretionary awards to non-rated businesses. The funding is limited for this scheme so we are currently designing a scheme that will offer fair support to local businesses.
