The Scottish Government announced some measures recently to extend assistance to businesses that had fallen outside the previous eligibility criteria.
Bed & Breakfast Businesses
B & B’s that could not apply for a Hardship Grant because they did not have a business bank account can apply for a £3,000 grant via their local council website from June 15. These funds may be limited so we would advise eligible clients to apply as soon as possible.
Businesses operating from shared offices and industrial premises where the landlord is responsible for business rates can now apply for a Coronavirus Business Support Grant.
To be eligible the business must:
- be a registered business or partnership
- have a lease signed before 17 March 2020
- employ at least one person
- have a business bank account
Applications can be made via council websites from June 8.
