The next round of Council Grants has been released for businesses forced to close due to national restrictions. These grants are aimed at businesses in the retail, leisure, hospitality, personal care and sports facility sectors.

They can only be claimed if the business has been forced to close due to restrictions, not if the closure was a business decision. The business also has to be a viable, ongoing business.

Payments are based on rateable value:

  • Less than £15,000 – grant of £6,239
  • £15,000 to £51,000 – grant of £9,357
  • Over £51,000 – grant of £14,035

Claim applications are open until 31st March 2021. If you are unsure about the claim process with your local council, please do not hesitate to contact Folkes Worton on 01384 376964
