Support for businesses most impacted by Omicron
Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant (OHLG)
Businesses can now make an application for this one-off grant
Eligible businesses must have a business rates account and be offering in-person services in the hospitality, leisure and accommodation sectors.
COVID Additional Relief Fund (CARF)
Businesses that have been adversely affected by the pandemic and have been unable to adequately adapt to that impact will soon be able to apply for a Business Rates Relief to reduce their Business Rates bill.
Businesses that are in receipt of Retail Discount, Nursery Discount or 100% Small Business Rate relief will not be eligible. Vacant premises will also not qualify (apart from temporary absence due to government advice on Covid).
Once the application is available businesses will be able to submit this online. We will provide full details of how to do this soon. Keep checking for updates.
You could also sign up to receive our newsletter for businesses. Keep up to date on this and other schemes as they are announced.
