How to apply

All applications need to be made online.

You will need to be registered on MyAccount to start the application. If you haven’t registered a MyAccount for business before, please select ‘Register’ and follow the instructions.

If you’ve already registered your business on this service, either to access Council Tax details or to apply for a Business Grant under the previous scheme, you can select ‘Sign in’ and enter the details you’ve already got set up. 

If you can’t remember your password, please use the ‘Forgot your password’ option.

If you experience any problems with the registration/sign-in process, please go to our support page for further help and advice.

When you have signed into MyAccount, select the ‘Covid-19 Business Support’ option to start the main application.

You will need all your documents with you before you start your application. The application may time out if there is no activity for 15 minutes. Your details won't be saved, so make sure you have all your information with you at the beginning. 

Restart grant applications

If you have applied for a grant before, your Restart grant application will be an additional form which is linked to your original application.  We’ll ask you to re-confirm some of the details from your original form. Please ensure that the details you provide match your original application.  We also need to ask for some extra details due to new government requirements. 

Please follow these steps

  1. Sign back into the secure online ‘MyAccount’ portal where you submitted your previous application(s)
  2. Scroll down and select ‘Start Restart Application’
  3. Find the application reference from your previous applications and click the green ‘Start Restart Application’ button next to it to get to the form

Once you’ve completed the form, you’ll find a list of completed Restart Grant applications at the bottom of the Restart grant section of your account.

If this is your first grant application you'll need to start a main grant application (green button on the form) first and then go back in to add the Restart Grant form.
