More business help available

The government has set up an additional discretionary fund to accommodate certain small businesses previously outside the scope of the business grant funds scheme.

The fund is aimed at small businesses with ongoing fixed property-related costs. The government is asking local authorities to prioritise businesses in shared spaces, regular market traders, small charity properties that would meet the criteria for Small Business Rates Relief, and bed and breakfasts that pay council tax rather than business rates.

For further information on the scheme please see the link here.
