The Additional Restrictions Support Grant is a discretionary grant scheme to help those businesses that are forced to close, but have no rateable value, or those which – while not legally forced to close – are nonetheless severely impacted by the restrictions put in place to control the spread of Covid-19.
Three types of business are eligible:
- Businesses mandated to close that are without a business rates bill i.e. B&Bs paying council tax
- Businesses that can remain open but have been severely impacted – 70% of the grant amount paid to a closed business will be paid
- Businesses that have been mandated to close but have received support under the local restrictions support grant. A top-up payment under Additional Restrictions Grant will be made. Please note, top-up payments will be processed as soon as all businesses that have not yet received any funding under points 1 and 2 above have been assessed
Grants will be paid as follows:
Business mandated to close without a business rates bill
Businesses that can remain open but have been severely impacted
Top up payment under Additional Restrictions Grant for businesses that have received funding under Local Restrictions Support Grant
10 or under
