Business Rates - Reductions, Exemptions and Discounts

RESTART GRANTS 

We have now completed the background checks required before making payment of the restart grants and payments for successful claims submitted before 7th May 2021 are due to be released Monday 10th May to be in bank accounts 2-3 days later.

All eligible businesses will need to make an application for a restart grant even if your business has received payment from previous grants.

To qualify, the business must be a business ratepayer, must have been trading on 1 April 2021 and be in one of the relevant sectors

Please note that the council are required to undertake more extensive and robust pre-payment checks on the restart grants, so processing times for these grants may be longer.

Business Support Grant Application Form

All applications will be validated and a determination made as to whether the business is eligible for a grant and how much. Payment will be made as soon as practical after the assessment has been made.

The government will not accept deliberate manipulation and fraud and any business caught falsifying their statements or evidence to gain grant money will face prosecution and any funding issued will be subject to claw back, as may any grants paid in error.

Some businesses may be eligible for reductions in business rates.
