The government has announced a series of economic support measures to coincide with the national measures:
- business premises forced to close in England due to local or national restrictions are to receive grants worth up to £3,000 a month under the local restrictions support grant
- for properties with a rate-able value of £15k or under, grants are to be £1,334 per month, or £667 per 2 weeks
- for properties with a rate-able value of between £15k-£51k grants are to be £2,000 per month, or £1,000 per 2 weeks
- for properties with a rate-able value of £51k or over grants are to be £3,000 per month, or £1,500 per 2 weeks
If you have a business that has ceased trading due to the new national restrictions from 5 November 2020, you can apply for a local restrictions support grant.
