Businesses urged to confirm their details for coronavirus grants
The council has paid out more than £17.7million to 1,400 businesses so far, but there are still around 600 businesses yet to claim.
Businesses that are eligible for coronavirus-related small business or retail, hospitality and leisure grants are being encouraged by East Hampshire District Council to come forward to claim the money they are entitled to.
The money has been earmarked for the individual businesses and will be released as soon as possible after they verify their details.
There are two grants available:
- Small Business Grants - a one-off grant of £10,000 to businesses that pay little or no businesses rates
- Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grants - provides businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors with a cash grant of up to £25,000 per property
Both grants are subject to eligibility criteria.
To find out more about the grants and access the form to confirm your details, please visit the council’s business support webpage: www.easthants.gov.uk/coronavirus-business-support
Manage your business rates online
Business ratepayers can view their business rates account online by registering for a portal account.
It’s also a good way to keep an eye on whether your grant has gone into your account.
