New grants available for South Norfolk and Broadland businesses
29 January 2021
New business grants from £2,000 to £20,000 are available to support large, small and micro businesses from South Norfolk and Broadland District Councils through the second phase of its discretionary business grant.
The Councils welcome applications from South Norfolk and Broadland businesses of any size, whether home based or based in business premises, business rated or not rated, self-employed or employing staff. They are particularly keen to hear from businesses that have so far been unable to receive any COVID-19 financial support.
To qualify for the Additional Restrictions Grant, businesses must have experienced a loss of income (turnover) of at least 20% or £40,000 and fall into one of the following categories:
A rated business that did not qualify for Local Restrictions Support Grant payments during national lockdowns or local restrictions.
A business that has so far been unable to receive any COVID-19 financial support – including businesses with premises which are not business-rated, or without its own business rating.
A business that employs 10 or more full-time equivalent employees and wishes to request a top-up to a previous Local Restrictions Support Grant award.
Any business that needs support is encouraged to get in touch to find out what funding they may be eligible for. Please share with your business networks and fellow business owners.
