Dear Levy Member,
The online application form for business grants from Basingstoke and Deane Council is now open.
The two schemes are:
- Business in receipt of Small Business Rates Relief (including those who get tapered support) and Rural Rate Relief will receive a £10,000 grant.
- Business in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors who have a property with a rateable value of between £15,000 and £51,000 will receive a £25,000 grant.
All eligible business will receive a letter or email (the same method as your business rates bills is sent) However you do not need to wait to receive this letter or email.
If you believe your business to be eligible for either of the grants you can make a claim via this form.
You will need to have your Business Rates account reference and the name of your business as it appears on your recent bill. If eligible and the form is complete with all necessary information, you can expect payment within 3 working days.
We realise some businesses are uncertain if they qualify for a grant or not. You can find out more of the details about eligibility here and you can find the most recent FAQs for the scheme here.
Further information on other available support as set out by central government can be found here.
