Covid-19 Additional Relief Fund

In late December 2021 the Government, through the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities introduced new regulations to support businesses entitled to Covid-19 Additional Relief Fund (CARF).

This fund will be available to support those businesses affected by the pandemic but that are ineligible for existing support linked to business rates. Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council has been allocated £2,241,206 to support businesses in this way.

Relief will be granted to businesses using discretionary relief powers under section 47 of the Local Government Finance Act 1988. This means that rather than providing a physical monetary payment, relief will be awarded through business rates accounts via our business rates systems. Revised bills will then be issued showing the amount of relief awarded. Central government will fully reimburse local authorities up to the maximum level of the allocations.
