Restart grant payment update

If you have provided all your information based on the email you have received by 16 April 2021 then we intend to make payment to the majority of applicants on the week commencing 26 April 2021.

Please note, if your application has been queried by HMRC you will be contacted separately, and your payment will not appear in this run.  If you are new to the scheme and have applied on or website your application will be paid in the next run

To support the recovery of the high street as government trading restrictions are relaxed, the Chancellor has announced the one-off payment 'Restart Grant'. This grant replaces the Local Restrictions Support Grant from April 2021 onwards (for eligible businesses).

If you have previously applied for a grant under the last lockdown, we have now started to send emails for the re-start grant please check your inbox (and spam) before contacting us as the email contains a unique link for you to apply and confirm your details.

For those that haven't received an email from us, please read the full guidance and how to apply on our restart grant scheme page.
