Coronavirus - Further Support for Businesses

Last Friday, the Chancellor announced a further welcome support package for businesses. For advice please view their website at: https://businesswales.gov.wales/coronavirus-advice.

They are experiencing a high volume of calls as you would expect so please view the website in the first instance.

I am also aware of the concern of those that are self employed, and both Craig Williams and I have made strong representations in this area to both Governments for additional support. I hope this will be shortly forthcoming. Please watch the latest news and I will report back in my next update.

Summary of Available Support

In Wales, retail, leisure and hospitality businesses will automatically receive 100% business rates relief for the 2020/21 financial year.

A £10,000 grant will also be available to all businesses eligible for Small Business Rates Relief with a rateable value of £12,000 or less. There will be a grant of £25,000 for retail, leisure and hospitality businesses with a rateable value of between £12,001 and £51,000.

Businesses that qualify for this support will not need to do anything to apply for this scheme. This will be administered through the Business Rates system. You do not need to contact your Local Authority about this, you will receive information in due course.

The Chancellor has also set out a package of temporary, timely and targeted measures to support public services, people and businesses through this period of disruption caused by COVID-19.

This includes a package of measures to support businesses including:

  • a Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme
  • deferring VAT and Income Tax payments
  • a Statutory Sick Pay relief package
  • the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme offering loans of up to £5 million for SMEs through the British Business Bank
  • a new lending facility from the Bank of England to help support liquidity among larger firms, helping them bridge coronavirus disruption to their cash flows through loans
  • the HMRC Time To Pay Scheme
More information on all of the support packages listed above is available by clicking here.
