Small Business Grants for Northern Ireland – Coronavirus Impact

The Northern Ireland Executive recently announced a grant scheme to help businesses deal with the impact of COVID-19.
The grant scheme consists of:

  • grants of £10,000 for recipients of the Small Business Rates Relief
  • grants of £25,000 for retail, tourism and hospitality businesses (if NAV is under £51,000)

It is anticipated that the small business grant scheme will assist around 30,000 businesses in Northern Ireland.

Payments under the grant scheme will be made directly into the bank accounts of eligible businesses. Bank details are held for just over 9,000 of small businesses who qualify. Payment can be expedited to those companies.
