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
