Coventry City Council Business Advice

Any business that has previously received Local Restrictions Support Grant funding will not need to apply for the new restart grant funding from the 1 April.

The Council will arrange for the payments to be made directly to the bank accounts used to make previous payments. We will contact you by email to confirm the payment arrangements and this is likely to take place in the week commencing 19 April. The reason for this delay is that the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) require Councils to perform additional verification checks before making the payments. If these checks highlight any issues then we will contact you with further information.

In addition, BEIS also require the Council to obtain further information about your business as part of the grant payment process and we will send you details about how to provide this additional information. It is important that you respond to this request as failure to provide the information may result in your grant payment being withheld or recovered.

For any businesses that have not previously received LRSG support we will be launching an application process and we will publicise this as soon as the form is available.
