Restart Grant announced in Budget 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 Government is also providing all local authorities in England with an additional £425 million of discretionary business grant funding, on top of the £1.6 billion already allocated. Altogether, this support will cost £5 billion.
West Berkshire Council will commence processing these grants in April, once further information has been released.
