The Chancellor has introduced grants of up to £10,000 for around 700,000 businesses, to be provided via funding given to local authorities in England. This compensates those smaller businesses which have small business premises that would not benefit from the separate rates reductions announced.
Who can claim?
You are eligible if:
- your business is based in England
- you are a small business and already receive SBBR and/or RRR
- you are a business that occupies property
How do you claim?
You do not need to do anything. Your local authority will write to you if you are eligible for this grant.
NOTE! Don’t give your bank details to anyone claiming to be from the local authority, it may well be a scammer. These rebates will be automatic.
