Details of the Tier 3 / Tier 4 grants

Businesses closed in both Tiers 3 and 4

If your business was ordered to close in both Tier 3 and Tier 4, you may be entitled to a payment if you meet the eligibility criteria of the Local Restrictions Support Grant scheme (Closed) PDF, 228.96 KB

We are prioritising support payments and one-off grants for periods of national lockdown since these seek to offer more immediate support to affected businesses. This means that you may receive payment for the November and January lockdowns before you receive support payments for Tier 3/Tier 4 restrictions.

If you have applied for a support payment under the Tier 3/Tier 4 restrictions and received an acknowledgement, there is no need to submit a further application, email or call to enquire about payment. We are in the process of assessing these claims and payment will be made as soon as possible. The amount of grant will depend on the rateable value of the business premises on 2 December 2020.

For the period 2 December 2020 to 18 December 2020 under Tier 3:

  • Properties with a rateable value of £15,000 or under are eligible for a payment of £809.93
  • Properties with a rateable value between £15,001 and £50,999 are eligible for a payment of £1,214.29
  • Properties with a rateable value of £51,000 are eligible for a payment of £1,821.43

For the period 19 December 2020 to 4 January 2021 under Tier 4:

  • Properties with a rateable value of £15,000 or under are eligible for a payment of £809.93
  • Properties with a rateable value between £15,001 and £50,999 are eligible for a payment of £1,214.29
  • Properties with a rateable value of £51,000 are eligible for a payment of £1,821.43

If you have already applied for and received a support grant for the second period of national lockdown and you have been ordered to remain closed between 2 December 2020 and 4 January 2021, you will not need to make a further application for the period of the Tier 3/Tier 4 restrictions.

Payment will automatically be made using the details already provided. If you are no longer eligible for the grant then you must inform the Council and repay the grant when requested.

If you have not already applied, you will need to submit an application.

Apply for a grant

Anyone caught falsifying their records to make a fraudulent application for any of the available grants will be prosecuted and ordered to repay the money.

Grants under these schemes are considered to be State Aid/Subsidy. It is the responsibility of the business to ensure they do not accept grant payments that would exceed the State Aid/Subsidy limits. If the limit is exceeded, the grant may be required to be repaid.
