North Somerset Local Restrictions Support Grant – Applications Open from Friday 13th November

The application process for the North Somerset Local Restrictions Support Grant is set to open from Friday 13th November.

To support businesses during the national restrictions which began on Thursday 5 November, two new grant schemes have been introduced.

The first is the Local Restrictions Support Grant which is for businesses that pay business rates and have been instructed to close by the Government.

The second is the Additional Restrictions Grant which is designed to support closed non-rated businesses or businesses that are severely impacted that require support in local areas. This scheme is discretionary.

What you will get

Local Restrictions Support Grants will be based on the rateable value of the property as it was on Thursday 5 November. The grant will be paid for the period of Thursday 5 November to Wednesday 2 December.

If your business is eligible and a property with a rateable value of £15,000 or less, you will receive a one-off cash grant of £1,334.

If your business is eligible and a property with a rateable value of £15,001 to £50,999, you will receive a one-off cash grant of £2,000.

If your business is eligible and a property with a rateable value of £51,000 or more, you will receive a one-off cash grant of £3,000.

How to Apply

We are advised that applications for the Local Restrictions Support Grant will be accepted from or soon after Friday 13 November.

Additional Restrictions Grant


The Additional Restrictions Grant is for businesses that have been severely impacted by the national restrictions that came into force on Thursday 5 November and are not eligible for the Local Restrictions Support Grant.

To be eligible your business must have been open as usual on the day before restrictions came into effect, has 49 employees or less and either:

·         you are not a business rates payer of the business you trade from or occupy and are required to close – this includes businesses registered for Council Tax

·         your business is not required to close but has closed due to a significant impact on trading

·         your business is continuing to operate but with significantly reduced demand due to social distancing rules

What you will get

Grants will mainly – but not exclusively – be based on the number of employees.

Businesses with 10 or less employees will get up to £1,000.

Businesses with between 11 and 49 employees will get up to £1,500.

 

How to Apply

We are advised that applications for the Additional Restrictions Grant will be accepted from or soon after Friday 13 November.
