Small Business Grant Funding

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

When and how will this be available?

If your business is eligible for SBRR or rural rate relief, you will be contacted by your local authority – you do not need to apply.

Funding for the scheme will be provided to local authorities by government in early April.

Can I claim SBRR at the same time as the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Funding?

No.  Further information about the RHLG can be found here.
