Sefton Council business grants update
Following extensive communication and engagement, Sefton Council has received 3,100 applications for Business Grants over the last few weeks. We are pleased to confirm that the majority of Business Support Grants have been processed for those businesses who are eligible and supplied the correct information.
The total value of payments to be made so far now stands at over £20 million.
If you have not received your business support grant this will be due to a query regarding eligibility or an error on the form. If you have submitted your personal name instead of your business bank account name on the on line form – Sefton Rates would ask to you re-submit with the correct details.
For all other queries – Sefton Rates team will contact you to resolve these other issues as quickly as possible.
We are aware that approximately 1,500 (30%) of targeted Sefton businesses have not yet completed the application process or made contact with the Council. We will continue to prioritise the processing any additional applications from Sefton businesses. If you are an eligible business within Sefton and have not yet applied for a business grant, you can apply via https://forms.sefton.gov.uk/covid19businessform/
