Businesses that were open as usual, but then required to close due to national restrictions imposed by government may be eligible for the LRSG (Closed) Addendum schemes:

- from 5 January 2021 onwards
- between 5 November and 2 December 2020

Businesses that were open as usual, but then required to close due to national restrictions imposed by government may be eligible for the LRSG (Closed) Addendum schemes.

 

Application deadline

The deadline that applies to the national lockdown LRSG (Closed) Addendum schemes for the national lockdown from 16 February to 31 March is 31 May 2021

 

Eligible businesses may be entitled to a cash grant from their local council for each period under national restrictions.

 

When national restrictions are introduced and businesses are required to close, the LRSG (Closed) Addendum schemes supersede the LRSG (Closed), LRSG (Open) and LRSG (Sector) schemes.

 

Eligibility

Your business may be eligible if it:

  • is based in England
  • occupies property on which it pays business rates (and is the ratepayer)
  • has been required to close because of the national restrictions from 5 January 2021 onwards, or between 5 November and 2 December 2020
  • has been unable to provide its usual in-person customer service from its premises

For example, this could include non-essential retail, leisure, personal care, sports facilities, tourism and hospitality businesses. It could also include businesses that operate primarily as an in-person venue, but which have been forced to close those services and provide a takeaway-only service instead.

 

Eligible businesses can get one grant for each non-domestic property.

 

Businesses excluded from the fund

You cannot get funding if:

  • you can continue to operate during the period of restrictions because you do not depend on providing direct in-person services from your premises (for example accountants)
  • you have chosen to close, but have not been required to close as part of national restrictions
  • your business is in administration, insolvent or has been struck off the Companies House register
  • you have exceeded the permitted subsidy limit

You must notify your local council if your situation changes and you no longer meet the eligibility criteria.

 

Subsidy control and state aid

Following the end of the transition period on 31 December 2020, there have been no changes to the conditions of this grant scheme. Your local council will set out the eligibility requirements for the scheme.

We will publish further guidance on subsidy rules in due course.

 

What you get

The grant will be based on the rateable value of the property on the first full day of restrictions.

 

National restrictions from 5 January 2021

If your business has a property with a rateable value of £15,000 or less, you may be eligible for a cash grant of £2,001 for each 42-day qualifying restrictions period.

 

If your business has a property with a rateable value over £15,000 and less than £51,000, you may be eligible for a cash grant of £3,000 for each 42-day qualifying restrictions period.

 

If your business has a property with a rateable value of £51,000 or above, you may be eligible for a cash grant of £4,500 for each 42-day qualifying restrictions period.

 

You may also be eligible for the Closed Businesses Lockdown Payment.
