Businesses open for trading in December but severely affected by covid19 restrictions may be eligible for grant aid.

Richmondshire District Council has more than £900,000 still available in its Local Restrictions Support Grant pot – which could help anyone from a shop or hospitality business severely hit by reduced trading to a leisure outlet or a business that has supply chain issues.

“This grant scheme has been under used mainly because we believe businesses don’t think they qualify for grant aid,” said Corporate Director, Sian Moore.

“It is there to help anyone that’s been allowed to continue trading but has done that with severe problems.  It could be a local shop or restaurant – or it could be a company that is indirectly hit such as a business that makes pantomime costumes, affected by there being no shows this festive season.”

The Local Restrictions Support Grant (Open) – LRSG(O) is available to businesses that:

  • Have a rateable value on its property
  • Was trading for at least part of the period 2nd December 2020 to 4th January 2021
  • Was severely impacted upon, financially, as a result of Covid19 restrictions
  • Had fixed unavoidable costs relating to the business

Some businesses are specifically excluded from both these schemes – including solicitors and accountants.
