Business support grants
Closed Business Lockdown Payment
The application process closed on 31 March 2021.
Businesses who receive a Non-Domestic Rates Bill that are entitled to Local Restriction Support Grant (closed) for the period 5 January to 15 February 2021 will also be entitled to a one off additional Closed Business Lockdown Payment.
This is only for businesses that have been required to close from 5th January 2021 due to the introduction of national restrictions. This includes non-essential retail, leisure, personal care, sports facilities and hospitality businesses.
The amount of award will be based on the size of the business premises using the rateable value of the property:
- properties with a rateable value of £15,000 or under will receive £4,000
- properties with a rateable value over £15,000 and less than £51,000 will receive £6,000
- properties with a rateable value of £51,000 or over will receive £9,000
We have now started to make payments under this scheme. If you are receiving ongoing grant payments due to your business being mandated to close, you should receive this payment automatically. If you have been mandated to close but have not yet applied for grant payments then please apply using the link below.
