Local authorities are now making business rate support grant payments, to help businesses during the coronavirus crisis.
The grants are comprised of two schemes:
Scheme 1 is the Business Supports Grants Fund, where businesses can apply for up to £10,000.
Scheme 2 is the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Business Grants Fund. This allows funding of up to £10,000 for retail, hospitality and leisure businesses with property of a rateable value up to £15,000. However, if the rateable value is over 15000 and below 51000, businesses will be able to apply for up to £25,000.
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy released guidance on the scheme, which you download here. Please read it carefully.
