4. Third Lockdown Business Grants - LRSG (Closed) Addendum & Top Up Grants

Please note that the grants for the 42 day period 5 January to 15 February 2021 and the Closed Business Top Up Grants, close to new applicants on 31 March 2021.

Grants for the 44 day period covering 15 February to 31 March 2021 close to new applicants on 31 May 2021.


Extended Scheme for 16 February to 31 March 2021

The amount of grant funding received is dependent on the rateable value (RV) of your premises :

- less than or equal to £15,000 will receive £2,096
- over £15,000 and less than £51,000 will receive £3,143
- equal to £51,000 and above will receive £4,714

If you have already received the one off Closed Business Top Up Grant you cannot receive it again.

You cannot apply if :

  • You have chosen to close but have not been required to
  • the majority of your business remains open. This allows for restaurants/pubs/other businesses which must be closed to public entry (losing the majority of normal trade) to still claim LRSG if a smaller permitted part of the business (e.g. take away/click and collect/delivery) remains in operation
  • the business was in administration, insolvent or a striking-off notice had been made on or prior to the 5 January 2021
  • you will exceed the limit for state aid under subsidy rules
