Local Restrictions Support Grant for businesses that closed from 5 November 2020
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Saturday 31 October 2020 regarding a national lockdown from Thursday 5 November 2020 to Wednesday 2 December 2020, additional grant funding has been made available to those businesses that have been unable to trade and are forced to close during the additional restrictions.
During this period a single grant to cover the four-week period will be paid to each eligible business.
The grant amounts will be fixed.
Businesses with more than one qualifying property will receive more than one grant.
Rate of payment for eligible businesses
- For properties with a rateable value of £15k or under, grants to be £1,334 per four weeks.
- For properties with a rateable value of over £15k and below £51k, grants to be £2,000 per four weeks.
- For properties with a rateable value of £51k or over, grants to be £3,000 per four weeks.
If you have been able to continue to trade during the lockdown period you will not be eligible to receive grant funding.
Payments will start from the week commencing 30 November 2020. Please do not reapply in that time.
Additional Restrictions Grant
If your business does not qualify for the Local Restrictions Support Grant but has been severely impacted by the lockdown, you may be eligible for a different grant – the Additional Restrictions Grant.
We do not currently have a date for the launch of this grant, although every effort is underway to ensure applications can be made as soon as possible.
Please ensure you have signed up to the Havering Business Briefing to be notified as soon as the application form and eligibility criteria are available.
