Two business grant schemes: the Small Business Grants Fund and the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grants Fund have been made available by the government to support eligible businesses during COVID-19. We will be sending out letters to all businesses who we think are eligible for one of these grants shortly, but in the meantime you can check if you are eligible to apply. Norwich City Council has been asked to process the grants on behalf of the government. In order to do this as quickly and efficiently as possible, we are asking you to fill in an online form. Before you start Make sure you have your annual business rates bill to hand as it contains lots of the information you will need to complete the form. Business rates account number Property reference number Rateable value of your property VAT reference and company number (if relevant) Bank account details including a copy of a bank statement which you can upload as a JPG image (max file size 4MB) Any business who accepts this funding must confirm they comply with all the applicable State aid requirements. Businesses who accept this funding must also provide information requested by the Local Authority to support monitoring and assurance. This can be done after the grant has been awarded. Please note that when you start the form you must continue to the end and submit it. You only have 10 minutes to fill out each page and you will not be able to save the form and come back later.
