How much support will businesses actually receive?
The information is readily available on the Scottish government website.
“The December and January Business Support Top Up – Hospitality is a Scottish Government fund administered by local authorities.
What you can get
The grant is a one-off payment at the rate of:
£4,500 for premises which have a rateable value of up to and including £51,000, or
£6,800 for premises have a rateable value of £51,001 or above”
A bit more digging is required on the UK government’s website to find out how much businesses in England will receive.
“Recognising that the rise of the Omicron variant means some businesses are likely to struggle over the coming weeks, the government is providing one-off grants of up to £6,000 per premises for businesses in the hospitality and leisure sectors in England.”
Not so detailed.
However, there is a link at the end of the article to published factsheets…
The factsheet says there will be one-off grants of
£2700 for premises with a rateable value from £0-£15k
£4000 for premises with a rateable value
£6000 for premises with a rateable over £51k
While there will be other support for businesses in Scotland and England, on this measure Scotland’s one-off grant is more generous.
