Small Business Grants and Retail, Hospitality and Retail Grants
We have written to all small businesses and Retail, Hospitality and Leisure companies/traders who operate from premises with a rateable value of under £51,000 to advise of the with potential entitlement to a business support grant. The letter asked businesses to provide information so we can establish if they are eligible for the grant and also the information we need to make a payment.
This information must be provided on an online form which you can find here.
As part of the application process you will be asked to upload a copy of your business' latest bank statement (For limited companies, this must be a company bank account. We are not be able to pay grants for a limited company into a personal bank account). Once we have received your completed online form and bank statement, we are required to carry out some due diligence checks to verify the information you have provided. If it is established you are eligible for a grant, it will be paid into your bank account via BACS. We appreciate that these are difficult times for our business community and we aim to deal with applications as quickly as possible. However due to the high volume of applications it may take up to 10-15 days to check and process your application. All businesses will receive a letter confirming whether or not they are eligible and payment will be made to eligible businesses by BACS.
Any Sandwell businesses that believe they may be eligible for a grant but have not yet filled in the online form with their details should go to our support for business webpage where they can check the qualifying criteria and complete the form to request a grant.
