Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice and information

Covid Business Support Grants

The business support grant schemes have all now closed for applications. We cannot accept any new applications.

During July we will be issuing final payments to businesses that applied before 30 June and who have not yet been paid. We are unable to make payment after 31 July 2021.

No new mandatory business support grant schemes have been introduced, or existing ones extended, to deal with the extension of covid 19 restrictions beyond 21 June, to 19 July 2021.

For those who have received business support grant payments from the Council, please remember the grants are treated as income, whether the business is within the scope of either Income Tax or Corporation Tax, and should be recorded in your accounts / HMRC returns as such..

Whether any tax is paid will depend on the business profits of the grant recipient (taking into consideration the grant and other business income and expenditure under normal tax rules), any other taxable income and personal and other allowances to which they are entitled. If in doubt please talk with your tax advisor. The Council cannot provide tax advice.
