The Chancellor has announced a number of measures to support businesses, one of which is the award of business grants to eligible businesses with a rateable value of up to £51k. We are currently writing to all eligible businesses.
Don’t worry if you can't access the letter from your premises, you can find a copy of the contents below, including links on how to apply for the grants online:
The types of grants being given to businesses fall into one of two schemes:
Scheme 1 – Business Support Grants (Small Business Rates Relief) - You will be eligible for a grant payment of £10,000 if you are in receipt of rural rate relief or small business rates relief
Scheme 2 – Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Business Grants Fund - You will be eligible for a grant payment of £25,000 where your rateable value is greater than £15,000 and less than £51,000.
There are grants which do not have to be repaid. The grant is intended to help businesses meet their on-going costs. There are no conditions attached to receiving this money and therefore if you have received a letter we urge you to return it as soon as possible in order to process your grant as quickly as possible.
If you would like apply for a grant, please provide your bank details by completing the NDR Grant online form. This will help us process your grant more quickly.
