Following on from the release of small business grant funding by the government back in March, a new discretionary fund has been released to assist businesses that didn’t qualify for the first scheme – Local Authority Discretionary Grant Fund.

As the name suggests, this is a discretionary fund operated by local councils. Businesses need to make applications directly to the council where their business premises are located. The amounts of the grants are up to £10k, £10k or £25k depending on various criteria.

Applications need to be supported by financial information relating to the losses they have suffered during COVID-19. As a result we are offering a service to complete these applications for businesses that are too busy focusing on current trade for their business. Our fees are based on savings made, so if no grant is awarded, no fees are charged.
