Non-Domestic Rates Grant Scheme – Apply By Tuesday, 30th June!
Wrexham Council have helped over 1,800 businesses and sole traders in the county borough by providing £22m in business grants since the lockdown began. This includes small charities and community sports clubs following recently revised eligibility rules. However, the Welsh Government recently announced that the grants scheme will close for applications on Tuesday, 30th June 2020.
Any businesses who have not yet received a business grant or funding from the Economic Resilience Fund should go to our website and check if they are eligible and then MAKE A CLAIM. You will find all the relevant information on our site, including revised criteria for small charities and community amateur sports clubs.
We are particularly asking owners of shops, offices, hairdressing salons, garages and petrol stations, and non-council community centres or buildings to consider claiming.
Self-Employment Income-Support Scheme Extended
The scheme has now been extended – find out more here. A second and final grant will be available when the scheme opens again in August 2020. If you’re eligible and want to claim the first grant you must make your claim on or before Monday, 13th July 2020. If you’re eligible, the second and final grant will be a taxable grant worth 70% of your average monthly trading profits paid out in a single instalment covering a further three months’ worth of profits and capped at £6,570.
