Small business grant funding

Small business grant funding of £10,000 for all business in receipt of small business rate relief or rural rate relief

What is it?

The government will provide additional Small Business Grant Scheme funding for local authorities to support small businesses that already pay little or no business rates because of small business rate relief (SBBR), rural rate relief (RRR) and tapered relief.

This will provide a one-off grant of £10,000 to eligible businesses to help meet their ongoing business costs.

Who is it for?

You are eligible if:

  • your business is based in England
  • you are a small business and already receive SBBR and/or RRR
  • you are a business that occupies property

How does it work?

To apply for the grant you need to fill in a Business Rates Grant application form, which will be supplied by your local authority. Find your local authority here.

Any enquiries on eligibility for, or provision of, the reliefs and grants should be directed to the relevant local authority.

What don't we know yet?

We will update this section once we have more information.
