The Chancellor has announced a one off grant for England aimed at the Hospitality, Retail and Leisure Sectors of up to £9,000 per business premises.

What is the grant?

A one off grant on a per property basis.

  • £6,000 for businesses with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000.
  • £9,000 for businesses with a rateable value of over £51,000.
  • Note – this is in addition to the Local Restrictions Support Grants announced in 2020.


  • A business is forced to close due to Government imposed Covid-19 restrictions.

How to apply?

  • Through your Local Authority.


31st January Deadline

  • HMRC will not waive penalties nor extend the 31st January Self-Assessment filing deadline.
  • HMRC will accept pandemic-related disruption caused to the taxpayer’s business or their personal circumstances as a reasonable excuse. The same will apply when agents are delayed in filing a return due to the pandemic.
  • The appeal period for a late filing penalty will be extended from one to three months to give taxpayers and agents more time.

·    Don’t forget that if the 31st January tax payment is no more than £30,000 that you can enter into a Time to Pay arrangement to spread the debt over         12 months.
