As part of the roadmap for the easing of Covid-19 restrictions the Government announced a Restart Grant for businesses to help them reopen safely. This grant is a one-off payment to support the following categories of businesses which are also registered to pay business rates:
A non-essential retail business can be defined as a business that is used mainly or wholly for the purposes of retail sale or hire of goods or services by the public, where the primary purpose of products or services provided are not necessary to the health and well-being of the public.
A hospitality business can be defined as a business whose main function is to provide a venue for the consumption and sale of food and drink.
An accommodation business can be defined as a business whose main lodging provision is used for holiday, travel and other purposes.
A leisure business can be defined as a business that provides opportunities, experiences and facilities, in particular for culture, recreation, entertainment, celebratory events and days and nights out.
A personal care business can be defined as a business which provides a service, treatment or activity for the purposes of personal beauty, hair, grooming, body care and aesthetics, and wellbeing.
Gym & Sports
A gym & sport business can be defined as a commercial or non-profit establishment where physical exercise or training is conducted on an individual basis or group basis, using exercise equipment or open floor space with or without instruction, or where individual and group sporting, athletic and physical activities are participated in competitively or recreationally.
This form is provided to capture the information required by the council to verify and make the payment of these grants.
