Restart Grant - April 2021

Apr 4, 2021

The Government will provide 'Restart Grants' in England of up to £6,000 per premises for non-essential retail businesses, and up to £18,000 per premises for hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym businesses. This will give businesses the cash certainty they need to plan ahead and safely start trading again over the coming months.

The grants will be paid to rate-paying businesses and will be distributed automatically, so there is no need for businesses to apply unless they have not received grant funding from the Council under previous schemes. No funding will be released until after 1 April 2021.

Eligible businesses will receive one of the following grants per premises, depending on rateable value:

Strand one - non-essential retail businesses:

  • Businesses with a rateable value of £15,000 or under will receive a payment of £2,667
  • Businesses with a rateable value over £15,000 and less than £51,000 will receive a payment of £4,000
  • Businesses with a rateable value of exactly £51,000 or over will receive a payment of £6,000

Strand two - hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym businesses:

  • Businesses with a rateable value of exactly £15,000 or under will receive a payment of £8,000
  • Businesses with a rateable value over £15,000 and less than £51,000 will receive a payment of £12,000
  • Businesses with a rateable value of exactly £51,000 or over will receive a payment of £18,000
  • West Berkshire Council will commence processing these grants in April. For more information, visit https://info.westberks.gov.uk/restart-grant
