As you will be aware the Chancellor has put together a package of temporary measures to support businesses through this period of disruption.
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy have produced the guidance below:
If you think you may be entitled to a grant , please complete the form below. Alternatively please contact us on 01279 655261 Ext 7223 East Herts or for SBC 01438 242876
Before completing this form, please read our guidance on State Aid below.
Any Grant award is required to comply with the EU law on State Aid, where you cannot receive 'State Aid' in excess of €800,000, over a three year period, under the Regulations EC 1407/2013.
State aid is discretionary assistance from a Government body and therefore includes any Retail Discount you already receive from the Council and any Grant under this scheme. Should you be claiming grant for multiple property outside of the Council's area, you will need to complete the declaration below giving details of the other aid you are receiving, and return the form to us.
If the grant award will mean you have received over the State Aid limits, please do not apply for the grant as you will be asked to repay it. Do not delay in making your online application if the grant will not breach state aid limit. Any business caught falsifying their records to gain additional grant money will face prosecution and any funding issued will be clawed back. Any grant issued in error will also be recoverable
