Is your business missing out on Government Financial Support?

Local Restrictions came into force on 14 October 2020, and many businesses were forced to close.  After this date national restrictions were implemented on 5 November 2020, and again many businesses were compulsorily closed.

If you were affected by local or national restrictions you may qualify for a grant, and in some cases, you can apply for both of the restriction grants.

To qualify for each of the grant schemes your business must:

  • Have been registered for the payment of business rates for your commercial premises at the point of forced closure
  • Have been open and trading as usual immediately before the restrictions were applied
  • Have been providing services in person to customers from the premises prior to the introduction of the restrictions
  • Included in the list of businesses forced to close as stipulated in the criteria for each grant below
