Kirklees Council understands that the COVID-19 pandemic is a time of great uncertainty and difficulty for business of all sizes and in all sectors. We are committed to working together with key partners in the private sector to maintain jobs and investment.
As you will know the Government has announced a package of targeted measures to support businesses during this period, including a job retention scheme; business rate reliefs and grants for small businesses and firms in the retail, leisure and hospitality sectors; support for Statutory Sick Pay for SMEs; and loan finance via the Bank of England and British Business Bank.
