Call for businesses to claim financial support

Rutland County Council is calling on local businesses to come forward if they have been impacted by COVID-19 and are eligible to receive financial support.

The Chancellor has set out a package of measures to help businesses through the current period of disruption caused by COVID-19. This includes:

  • A Small Business Grant Fund (SBGF) of £10,000 for all businesses who receive small business rate relief or rural rate relief
  • A Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund (RHLGF) of £10,000 for businesses who receive the Expanded Retail Discount and have a rateable value of less than £15,000

Rutland County Council has already paid out £8.6million of COVID-19 grant funding to 732 local businesses. 

The Council estimates that a further 200 local businesses are eligible for financial support but yet to claim a grant.

If believe that your business is eligible to receive one of these grants, you should submit your details via our Business Support page so that we can process your payment as quickly as possible. 

Businesses should only provide details if they meet the government’s eligibility criteria.

For further details got to our Business Support page or email: LTaxation@rutland.gov.uk
