At the start of April the government announced they are providing Restart Grants in England of up to £6,000 per premises for non-essential retail businesses, and up to £18,000 per premises for hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym businesses.
Small Business Minister Paul Scully who recently featured on our live Webinar has said the following:
"Government grants have been critical in relieving cash flow pressures and enabling businesses to plan ahead, and I am urging councils to deliver these vital funds to where they are needed as soon as possible.
We have made extraordinary efforts to stand by small business owners. Now we need to press on and continue getting money to them in good time to ensure that our communities are ready to build back better following the pandemic."
Councils are being pressed to ensure funds are paid out as quickly as possible to relieve ongoing pressure on businesses.
