On 5 January 2021 we entered a national lockdown period and the government announced further funding in the form of the Closed Businesses Lockdown Payment, in addition to the Local Restrictions Support Grants
The Closed Businesses Lockdown Payment fund is aimed at supporting businesses that occupy business rateable premises (and are the rate payer) who have been mandated to close by government during the National lockdown (from 5 January 2021).
The grant is a one-off payment to eligible businesses of £4k, £6k or £9k dependent on ratable value.
We have emailed businesses who we think may be eligible for this grant (w.c. 11 January 2021).
Deadline for applications for this grant is 31 March 2021. This funding is not retrospective.
