All businesses that were registered for business rates before the 4th November 2020, and were legally required to close as a result of the National Lockdown from 5 January, will automatically receive a grant payment this week.

The one-off top-ups will be granted to closed businesses on a per property basis as follows:

  • £4,000 for businesses with a rateable value of £15,000 or under
  • £6,000 for businesses with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000
  • £9,000 for businesses with a rateable value of over £51,000

Additional Discretionary Funding will also be made available to support other businesses that are not eligible for this grant but are affected by the restrictions.  As soon as this becomes available guidance on the eligibility criteria and how to apply will be published online at www.kirklees.gov.uk/coronavirusbusiness
