26 May Have you made a claim yet?
So far Mid Sussex DC has paid to nearly 1,850 local business nearly £23.5m of business grants. But many business grants are still unclaimed. Kevin Stewart, MSDC and his team are cold calling companies they believe may be entitled who have still yet to claim.
The Government introduced business grants of £10,000 or £25,000 to support small businesses during the present uncertain times caused by COVID19. These are one off payments, based on business rates liability at the 11th March 2020. The payments will be made to the ratepayer at this time and there will be one payment per property.
If you have still not claimed for this, please complete the online form at www.GrantApproval.co.uk (its a third party form provided by the Council). Once this is completed in full they will process and any qualifying businesses will have money transferred to their bank accounts as quickly as we can (normally within 3 or 4 working days).
Further information on these business grants including the criteria is available at https://www.midsussex.gov.uk/revsandbens/business-rates/new-grants-for-business-rates/
