Support and grants

Recovery Loan Scheme:

The Recovery Loan Scheme was introduced in April 2021 to help businesses access loans and other kinds of finance to help their post-pandemic recovery.

In July 2022, the Government announced a two-year extension to the Scheme to help firms struggling with inflationary pressures.

Applications will open in August 2022, and more information will be provided by the Government nearer to this date.

Business Relief Rates:

Some properties are eligible for discounts from the local council on their business rates. More information about business rate relief can be found on the Government’s website.

Businesses in the retail, hospitality or leisure sectors will have a 50% rate reduction automatically applied to their bill.
