Various measures to assist businesses were announced by Government.
The Business Rates team have awarded the new Expanded Retail Relief, Nursery Relief and have been contacting businesses who may be eligible for the Small Business, Retail and Leisure Grants.  
The Department of Business, Energy and Strategy has also provided further funding in the form of a Local Authority Discretionary Grant Fund for those who have not been eligible for other forms of funding. They have requested that each authority produces a local policy in line with their guidance. If you wish to apply for this funding, please review the policy and apply online.  For further guidance, please read our guidance document.
Please do not contact the Business Rates team with queries regarding entitlement. Instead please refer any enquiries to [email protected] 
Further information can also be obtained via the GOV.UK website.
