Restart Grant scheme upto 18000 for your small business – what is it and where to claim

Shops can apply for up to £6,000 grant to reopen on April 12, while hospitality and leisure businesses could get up to £18,000


A Restart Grant worth up to £18,000 for the largest businesses will help shops, pubs, hotels and any other small business through to June 21, when it’s hoped the final coronavirus restrictions will be lifted.

Mr Sunak is also expected to announce on Wednesday that other small business support schemes such as furlough will be extended until the end of June.

Where to find your Restart Grant

The Restart Grant scheme, administered by local councils, will help almost 700,000 small business owners including those running shops, pubs, clubs, hotels restaurants, gyms and hair salons.

Non-essential retail businesses will get up to £6,000 per premises through the Restart Grant scheme to help them reopen. Shops will reopen no earlier than April 12, according to the Government’s Covid-19 roadmap.

More Restart Grant money will be available for any small business in hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gyms, which will reopen later and will be more affected by restrictions. They can receive up to £18,000, depending on their rateable value.
