If you have received funding for the November lockdown grant, the councils' business rates team will automatically process the following payments for your business:
These schemes are aimed at businesses operating in the non-essential retail, personal care, sports facilities, hospitality and leisure sectors that are registered for business rates and have been mandated to close under Government restrictions.
Our business rates team will be in touch with eligible businesses by email in the coming days to confirm the payment process. We must stress that there are currently no actions that eligible businesses need to take.
All eligible businesses should receive an email by the end of February. If you believe you may be eligible and you have not received an email by then, or you did not apply for the November lockdown grant, you will need to complete an application form. Please await further information via the SVBS newsletter regarding the application process.
