Business grants - COVID-19

Updated: 6 April 2021

Restart grant

This is a new government scheme for business ratepayers. If you have received payment for the lockdown grants: the government has asked us for information about your business to ensure eligibility for the restart grant payment. We will be emailing businesses asking for required information by 9 April 2021.  The government has made it compulsory to carry out pre-payment assurance checks before payment can be made, this will cause a delay in processing payment.  We aim to make payment by end of day on Thursday 22 April.
