Covid-19 Business Support Grants

The Council is inviting applications for the various business grant schemes relating to the current National Lockdown and the various schemes covering the period from 5 Nov 2020 onwards. 

If your business has received a Covid-19 Business Support Grant from the Council since 5 November 2020

Please check your business e-mail account - Where your business has received payment of a business grant since 5 Nov 2020 we will have e-mailed you an invitation to re-apply. To claim, simply click on the link in the e-mail and answer the questions, as appropriate, we will then assess your entitlement. Where you qualify, we will aim to make payment as soon as possible. 

If your business has not received a Covid-19 Business Support Grant from the Council since 5 November 2020 

Where you have not received a payment since 5 November 2020: you may still be entitled to receive a business grant.  We need to collect more information about your business to enable us to identify which business grants you potentially qualify for.  (NB. we appreciate that you may have received one of the original National Lockdown business grants payable from March 2020, but we will need you to provide more information to enable us to identify your eligibility for the more recent grants). 

Please visit the Council’s website at www.somersetwestandtaunton.gov.uk/business-rates/covid-business-support-grants/ At the bottom of the page you will find the link to provide this information and to register your interest in claiming a business grant. 

Once you have registered, we will identify which of the various grants you may be eligible to receive and will e-mail you a simple application questionnaire.  Where you qualify, we will aim to make payment as soon as possible.

To avoid any risk from scamming, please be aware that in cases where we need to contact you for additional information in connection with your grant registration we will always quote the reference number detailed above.

Where we send you an e-mail application questionnaire to apply for specific grants we will NOT ask you to provide bank details or payment information. 

Information about the various business grant schemes and claims periods can also be found on the Council’s website at www.somersetwestandtaunton.gov.uk/business-rates/covid-business-support-grants/
