Coronavirus (COVID-19) business grants

Support for businesses

Financial support is available for businesses during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Grants you may be able to claim

You may be able to claim Tier 2, 3, 4 and national restrictions support if you pay business rates and your business has either been forced to close or is severely affected by local restrictions from 2 December 2020.

If your business is not eligible for Tier 2, 3, 4 and national restrictions support but has been severely affected by restrictions from 2 December 2020 up to, and including, 31 January 2021, you may be eligible for a local restrictions discretionary support grant.

You may be able to claim a national restrictions support grant if your business was required to close during the period of restrictions from 5 November 2020 to 2 December 2020.

We are also providing assistance with business rates.

Grants you can no longer claim

The discretionary support scheme for businesses severely affected by restrictions from 5 November to 2 December 2020, but that did not qualify automatically for a grant, closed on 13 January 2021 .

You can no longer claim grants from the following government schemes, which ended on 28 August 2020:

  • Small Business Grants Fund (SBGF)
  • Retail and Hospitality Grant Scheme
