Businesses invited to apply for additional restrictions grants
Waverley Borough Council has secured further central government funding to support Waverley-based businesses which have continued to be severely affected following the easing of national restrictions in July 2021. The value of the funding allocated to business grants is £918,000. Applications are open to all businesses, although priority will be given to those from businesses which missed out on earlier grant schemes as well as:
businesses which supply the retail, hospitality, and leisure sectors
businesses in the events sector
businesses involved in the travel industry
Businesses that are in administration, insolvent or where a striking-off notice has been made, are not eligible for funding under this scheme. An application process is in place, and applicants will need to demonstrate:
Their business is based within the Waverley area
From August 2021 to October 2021, their gross income or turnover has reduced by at least 50% from pre-pandemic levels, and this must be provided as evidence
Evidence of any property or fixed costs
All applicants will acknowledge that the application and award details will be shared with other government departments, including HM Revenues & Customs.
To apply go to the application form and for further information and guidance for applications go to the council's website.
