Bromsgrove District Council’s Revenues Team are pulling out all the stops to make sure small businesses affected by the Coronavirus pandemic can access Government grants.
But officers are aware that they haven’t got enough details of some small businesses so can’t issue the money accordingly.
Businesses are urged to apply for the grants on the Council’s website and fill in the simple form on this web page.
So far £10.152m has landed into the bank accounts of 896 eligible businesses in Bromsgrove. This follows the Government announcement that it would pay £10,000 to all businesses that receive small business rate relief, and up to £25,000 to eligible businesses in the retail, hospitality, and leisure sectors depending on their rateable value. To date the Council has been given £21.222m in grants
Council Leader Karen May said: “Bromsgrove boasts lots of small businesses which are integral to the economic success of the District.
“I know they have been hit by this pandemic and I am reassured that our officers are working really hard to ensure the much needed funds reach their bank accounts as quickly as possible.
“The grants will go some way to alleviate worries and ensure that our valuable small businesses will continue to enhance our District when we are out of these necessary measures.”
