NEWS BUSINESS SUPPORT


directed to the relevant local authority. Guidance for local authorities on the business rates holiday have already been published.


Support for businesses that pay little to no business rates The government will provide additional funding for local authorities to support small companies that already pay little to no business rates because of small business rate relief (SBRR). This will provide a one-off grant of £10,000 to firms currently eligible for SBRR or rural rate relief, to help meet their ongoing business costs. If your company is eligible for SBRR or rural rate relief, you will be contacted by your local authority – you do not need to apply. Funding for the scheme will be


provided to local authorities by government in early April. Guidance


for local authorities on the scheme will be provided shortly.


Support for businesses through the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme A new temporary Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme, delivered by the British Business Bank, will launch this week to support firms to access bank lending and overdrafts. The government will provide lenders with a guarantee of 80% on each loan (subject to a per-lender cap on claims) to give lenders further confidence in continuing to provide finance to SMEs. The government will not charge businesses or banks for this guarantee, and the scheme will support loans of up to £5 million in value. Companies can access the first six months of that finance interest free,


as government will cover the first six months of interest payments. For more information, visit the


government’s support for companies through the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme page.


Support for businesses paying tax


All businesses and self-employed people in financial distress, and with outstanding tax liabilities, may be eligible to receive support with their tax affairs through HMRC’s Time to Pay service. These arrangements are agreed on a case-by-case basis and are tailored to individual circumstances and liabilities.


If you are concerned about being able to pay your tax due to Covid-19, call HMRC’s dedicated helpline on 0800 0159 559. For more information, visit gov.uk/business-support-helpline
