Kirklees Council information on Business support for businesses in Kirklees

It is estimated that more than 900 eligible businesses in Kirklees are still to apply for a Government grant that could provide valuable financial assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have now paid out almost £72million in Government coronavirus grants to 6389 local businesses and hundreds of applications continue to be processed every day.

All eligible local businesses that apply will receive a one-off payment of either £10,000 or £25,000 and the grant doesn’t need to be paid back.

All businesses in Kirklees with a rateable value of less than £15,000 and who are already in receipt of Small Business Rate Relief, Rural Rate Relief or tapered relief are eligible for a £10,000 Small Business Grant.

In addition, businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors, with a rateable value of over £15,000 and less than £51,000, are eligible for a £25,000 grant under the Government’s Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant scheme to help mitigate loss of trade or other impacts of COVID-19.

To find out more about the grants and apply online visit this page on the Kirklees website.
