Coronavirus Restart Grant for businesses

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

The Restart Grant is a one-off grant for business ratepayers from April 2021, to support reopening safely as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

The grant payment amount depends on the type of business and the rateable value of each business.
