Covid-19 Hospitality and Leisure Grant

Posted: 12th Jan 2022 by Clair Watmore Business Advice General, cashflow, Coronavirus

Chancellor Rishi Sunak has set out a £1bn fund to help businesses hit by the rise in Covid cases, including the leisure and hospitality sector.

What does this mean?

  • Restaurants, bars, cinemas and theatres can apply for a grant of up to £6,000 for each of their premises. The Treasury is setting aside £683m for these grants and it will be provided under existing council-run schemes.
  • Other struggling businesses outside leisure and hospitality can apply to local councils for a different grant under the Additional Restrictions Grant, which has been topped up with £102m.
  • The Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme is being reintroduced, meaning business with fewer than 250 employees can claim money to cover sick pay for employees who are affected by Covid.
  • An extra £30m for arts organisations through the existing Culture Recovery Fund.
