Eligible businesses could receive a one-off payment of up to £6,000 based on the rateable value of their business premises. Businesses with a rateable value:

Businesses can still apply for this support if they have received support through other Covid-19 grants.
Payments will start to be processed for successful applicants starting the week of 17 January 2022
