Covid-19 support for businesses

On 17 March, 2020 the Government announced a guidance and funding for businesses in the light of the outbreak of Covid-19.

See COVID-19: support for businesses on GOV.UK for guidance on paying sick pay, business rates, loan scheme, tax and insurance.

We will administer the following business rate holidays and grants.

  • A 12-month business rates holiday for all retail, hospitality and leisure businesses in England.

  • Small business grant funding of £10,000 for all business in receipt of small business rate relief or rural rate relief.

  • Grant funding of £25,000 for retail, hospitality and leisure businesses with property with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000.

Eligible businesses rate bills have automatically been recalculated and are now being sent out.
