COVID-19 Grant Funding


It was announced in the budget that all properties in receipt of rural rate relief or small business rates relief on 11 March 2020, will be eligible for a grant payment of £10,000 to meet ongoing business costs. 

The Government announced a second scheme on 17 March to provide additional grant funding proposing that properties which would have qualified for expanded retail discount on 11 March 2020 will be entitled to £10,000 where the RV is £15,000 or less and £25,000 where the RV is greater than £15,000 and less than £51,000.
