On 3 March 2021, the Government announced the introduction of further support for non-essential retail, hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym businesses in England.

The level of grant available will depend on the business sector and the rateable value of the premises occupied.

The Restart Grant scheme supports businesses that are predominantly reliant on delivering in-person services for the general public in the aforementioned sectors. Examples of businesses within the scope of the scheme are detailed here.

Businesses will be ineligible if…

  • They have already received grant payments that equal the maximum permitted subsidy allowances
  • They are in administration, insolvent or a striking-off notice has been made
