Linked to Scotland’s Strategic Framework, the purpose of this grant is to provide, from 2 November 2020 onwards,  support to specific businesses closed or directly impacted by law, in the form of:

  • Business Temporary Closure Fund - a grant of £2,000 or £3,000 (depending on rateable value) for business required to close by law, payable every four weeks in arrears for the duration protective measures are in place;
  • Business Restrictions Fund - a grant of £1,400 or £2100 (depending on rateable value) for businesses that remain open but are specifically required to modify their operations by protective measures, payable every four weeks in arrears for the duration measures are in place. This means that your business is legally required to close earlier than normal, for example,  not that you have to adopt physical distancing or that the demand for your products or services has been reduced because of the pandemic or other restrictions which impact on individuals and communities.

Please DO NOT APPLY using this form if your business is mobile close contact services.
