All businesses that wish to claim will have to complete the secure online form by clicking on the link below. 

Do not use this form to apply for the RESTART grants available from April. We will aim to invite applications via a different on-line application and details will be updated on these pages when the scheme is live.

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.

We have staff that will help you at any stage of the collection process, from the time we send you a Business Rates bill.

Please do not ignore any letters or notices we send you about your Business Rates arrears.

If you think your notice is wrong, please phone, email or write to us and we will investigate for you. If you owe other debts to the council as well, such as rent arrears or overpaid benefits, please tell us because we may be able to help you make an arrangement that takes those debts into account.

We cannot help you unless you contact us. The number is (01453) 754859.

If you cannot afford to pay your bills, including Business Rates, and you would prefer to seek independent advice, there are various organisations that can help you.  Please see our help with debt page for further details.
