The Government has announced details of a package of financial support for businesses and the self-employed to help mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 virus.
This week Kirklees Council has written to all businesses in Kirklees who are eligible for either the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant or Small Business Grant to let them know that they need to complete an online form on the Council website in order to ensure payment as swiftly and securely as possible at the beginning of April. Further information and the online form is available here: www.kirklees.gov.uk/coronavirusbusiness
However, we are aware that, due to the current situation, many business owners are not at their business premises and therefore may not see this letter immediately. We would therefore be grateful if you could share this message via your own local networks to help us reach business owners across Kirklees. Business owners can also contact the Council business rates team if they have any questions about the grants or their application at firstname.lastname@example.org.
