The Government has announced additional funding for businesses affected by the new national lockdown for 2021. Businesses in the retail, leisure and hospitality sectors will receive a grant of up to £9,000 to support them during the lockdown period.
The one-off top-ups will be granted to businesses as follows:
- £4,000 for businesses with a rateable value of £15,000 or under
- £6,000 for businesses with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000
- £9,000 for businesses with a rateable value of over £51,000
A further £594 million is also being made available across the UK to support other businesses not eligible for the grants, that might be affected by the restrictions.
We are waiting to hear from the Government how this scheme will be administered and how payments will be distributed. As soon as we have this information we will publicise it via our website and social media. You can also keep checking your local District, Town and Parish Council websites.
