Help for Businesses

In a response to the current coronavirus pandemic, the Government has announced new measures to support businesses. Further guidance to employers and businesses about COVID-19 is now available.

Please note:

We are currently receiving a high volume of calls and correspondence regarding these announcements. As a result, response time to queries and other communications may be delayed whilst we identify qualifying accounts and install updates on our systems to apply reductions.

We are currently working on issuing revised bills showing the correct relief entitlement, there is no need for you to make a claim. For the expanded retail relief scheme, we aim to have new bills with you by 10 April. For grants, work has started to collate information to facilitate issuing of grants. You may be contacted by the council for information to help us provide you with any grant you may be entitled to. 

The link below provides the latest information regarding the reliefs and grants announced in the budget and will be updated as soon as new information is received from central Government.
