As the number and reach of local restrictions continues to increase, we thought it useful to provide some information on the Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG). This Grant supports businesses that have been required to close due to temporary COVID-19 local lockdown restrictions imposed by the Government.
A business is eligible if it:
- Occupies property on which it pays business rates
- Is in a local lockdown area and has been required to close because of the formal publication of local restrictions guidance that resulted in a first full day of closure on or after 9 September. This funding is not retrospective.
- Has been required to close for at least three weeks of the lockdown
- Has been unable to provide its usual in-person customer service from its premises.
If your business is eligible and has a property with a rateable value of less than £51,000, you will receive a cash grant of £1,000 for each three-week period your business is closed.
If your business is eligible and has a property with a rateable value of £51,000 or above, you will receive a cash grant of £1,500 for each three-week period your business is closed.
To apply for this Grant, visit your local council’s website.
