Welcome to the latest edition of our South and Vale Business Support newsletter!

For the second round of funding, we have exercised a greater level of discretion to meet the needs of our small businesses who have so far been ineligible for the government grants.

The levels of grant funding are as follows:
  • Micro businesses – £5,000
  • Small businesses – £10,000

  • a small or micro business?

  • based in South Oxfordshire or the Vale of White Horse district?

  • a home-based business or do you own/rent a premises?

  • suffered a significant fall in income due to the COVID-19 crisis?

  • got relatively high ongoing fixed property costs? If you are home-based, can you prove that the business pays towards your rent/mortgage or other fixed property costs?

  • was trading on 11 March 2020

  • occupies property, or part of a property, with a rateable value or annual rent or annual mortgage payments below £51,000

Applications will be assessed shortly after the closing date and decision letters will be emailed to applicants.

Successful applicants will need to sign the acceptance letter and return this to the council by email. Once we have received this letter, the grant will be paid.

We’ve put together a list of alternative funding streams and ways to share your services.

You can view the list on our website here.
