Guildford Borough Council – Grant Applications Open For Businesses Closed During Lockdown
Grants of up to £3,000 are available to help local businesses which have had to close during the four-week national lockdown, as we continue to support our local economy during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
The government’s Local Restrictions Support Grant (Closed) is available to rate-paying businesses which were trading as normal before Thursday 5 November, but had to close under the new guidelines.
Applications can be made online through our website, here. Grants are based on the rateable value of a business’s premises, and will be paid every four weeks whilst government restrictions are in force:
Rateable value up to £15,000 – a grant of £1,334
Rateable value of £15,001 to £50,999 – a grant of £2,000
Rateable value of £51,000 and over – a grant of £3,000
