Local Restrictions Support Grant (Closed) Addendum

The Local Restrictions Support Grant (Closed) Addendum: 5 January onwards supports businesses that are business rate payers and were open as usual, providing services in person to customers from their business premises, but were then required by law to close due to national lockdown restrictions. This includes businesses who were already closed as a result of local Tier 2 and Tier 3 restrictions. Businesses that have been required to close by the Government include:

  • non-essential retail
  • leisure
  • personal care
  • sports facilities
  • hospitality businesses

To view the full list of businesses and venues required to close visit the GOV.UK website

Businesses that can continue to trade because they do not rely on providing services in person from their premises and can operate their services effectively remotely (e.g. accountants, solicitors), will not be eligible for this grant. 

Those businesses that have chosen to close but have not been required to by law, will not be eligible for this grant.


Payments

Grants will only be paid to business properties that have a rateable value before 5 January 2021.

A single grant payment will cover each eligible 42 day period from 5 January 2021. 

The value of the payment will depend on the rateable value of the property:

  • rateable value of £15,000 or less on 5 January 2021 will receive a payment of £2,001 per 42 day qualifying restriction period
  • rateable value over £15,000 but less than £51,000 on 5 January 2021 will receive £3,000 per 42 day qualifying restriction period
  • rateable value of £51,000 or more on 5 January 2021 will receive £4,500 per 42 day qualifying restriction period
