Business Start-Up Grant - Information for Applicants

You must use the downloadable application form and submit your application by email. 

The information that you provide in the application form will be used to assess your application. The grant is awarded at Argyll and Bute Council’s discretion. You will not be able to access funding if it is likely to have a significant negative impact on other Argyll and Bute-based businesses. 

You cannot be awarded a grant if you or your business has any debts owing to the Council and a check will be made if you submit an application form.  A credit check may be undertaken. 

Any costs already incurred are not eligible for grant support.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on 1 December 2024 although the programme will close for applications sooner if funds are fully allocated.

This grant is funded by the UK Government under the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. Any payment received is taxable and must be declared to HMRC as appropriate as part of the tax return for the business.
