   Cash grants for Businesses    6 April, 2020
We have received £46m grant for the cash grants to small businesses. We are inviting applications to the fund and received 1000 in the first 48 hours. However there are 4000 eligible businesses in B&NES so 75% have not yet applied. The Government created some confusion initially because they said it was not necessary to apply and that local councils would contact the businesses. This proved impossible because contact details such as phone and email addresses were not held for all businesses. Please use your networks to encourage businesses to contact the council using the online form at https://beta.bathnes.gov.uk/register-business-grant-due-covid-19.
 
Any underspend will be returned to the Treasury. Any overspend can be claimed so no-one eligible should lose out. All businesses trading on the 11th March are eligible."
