Central Government has recently released guidance for the administration of the Restart Grants effective from the 1 April 2021. The Government has mandated that the council undertakes extensive pre-payment checks prior to the payment of ALL Restart Grants.
For further information see Restart Guidance
The pre-payment checks apply to all previous grant recipients, consequently we will not be able to process Restart Grants as quickly as we have done with previous Business Support Grants. Please be aware that we may require additional information/documentation from you that hasn't been requested previously.
About Restart Grants
A new system of one-off Restart Grants is being introduced from April 2021, replacing the Local Restrictions Support Grants (LRSG).
This is a one-off business grant available to non-essential retail businesses (Strand One), and hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym or sport business premises (Strand Two).
These will be one-off payments to rate-paying businesses, predominantly reliant on delivering in-person services for the general public, in the non-essential retail and hospitality, leisure, personal care and accommodation sectors.
This application is provided to capture the information required by North Devon Council to verify and make the payment of these grants.
You will need your rate account reference and the name of the ratepayer as it appears on your recent bill, your VAT number (if registered) or National Insurance Number and a March/April 2021 bank statement.
Payments will be made by BACS to your business account.
