Local Authority Support/Grants for business who benefits from the Small Business Rates Relief or Rural Rates Relief

The government will provide additional Small Business Grant Scheme funding for local authorities to support small businesses that already pay little or no business rates because of small business rate relief (SBBR), rural rate relief (RRR) and tapered relief. This will provide a one-off grant of up to £10,000 to eligible businesses to help meet their ongoing business costs.

You are eligible if: your business is based in England; you are a small business and already receive SBBR and/or RRR and you are a business that occupies property.

Depending upon local authority you may need to make a claim as some are requesting that claims are made to them and others are stating that they will contact. Please check your local authority website to see if you need to make a claim.

For those under Charnwood Council you need to register your claim at https://www.charnwood.gov.uk/pages/coronavirus_business_support_grants_payments

Any enquiries on eligibility for, or provision of, the reliefs and grants should be directed to the relevant local authority.
