Small Business Support Grant

Announced a few weeks ago, many businesses are unaware of a grant that they can claim to support their businesses. This grant has been put in place for small to medium size businesses, in a bid to help them overcome issues faced as a result of COVID-19.

The grant can be used for technology upgrades, equipment hire as well as hiring professional advisors. With the general acceptable categories being detailed as: Accountants, financial, human resources, IT and digital and legal. The government has provided £20m for this grant, businesses can access between £1,000 and £5,000.

This grant can be applied for through a growth hub, you can see the full list of growth hubs by clicking here.

This grant will be a welcome announcement for many businesses and we advise you to explore your options, should this grant not be applicable for your business there may be other schemes available to you.

Coronavirus/COVID-19 Update

We are still here to help you

We have activated our plan for our team to work remotely as much as possible. The office is still open and there will always be someone on reception in normal working hours but for obvious reasons, the telephone and email are the best way to contact us as we follow the UK Government guidance to reduce contact.

If you have any direct questions about your business and the effects of the virus please get in touch with your usual contact or directly to me david@kirkhills.co.uk or adrian@kirkhills.co.uk
