Grant support to be made available for businesses forced to close

If you have a business rates account, and your business has been forced to close, you may be able to apply for the Local Restrictions Support Grant.

The Government is giving councils in England funding to provide grant support payments to businesses with a business rates account forced to close due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Find out more about the new national restrictions on the Government’s website.

There is more information about the qualifying criteria on the Government website on the link above, or by contacting your local district council. If you are required to close in England because of national restrictions being introduced on 5 November 2020, you may qualify for the following:

  • For properties with a rateable value of £15,000 or under, grants to be £1,334 per four weeks
  • For properties with a rateable value of over £15,000 and below £51,000, grants to be £2,000 per four weeks
  • For properties with a rateable value of £51,000 or over grants to be £3,000 per four weeks

Please check your local district council website for information about which business must close, and those that may remain open, and what other business support is available. Each district council website has been linked below to help.
