New Restart Grant from 1 April

The Restart Grant aims to support businesses to reopen safely as COVID-19 restrictions are eased across the country and replaces the Local Restrictions Support Grant (LRSG) scheme for closed businesses on the rating list.

It is a one-off payment, dependent on the rateable value of your business on 1 April 2021.

Payments are split across two strands:

Non-essential retail premises:

Rateable value of your premises Grant payment
Up to £15,000 £2,667
£15,001 – £50,999 £4,000
£51,000 and above £6,000

Hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym business premises:

Rateable value of your premises Grant payment
Up to £15,000 £8,000
£15,001 – £50,999 £12,000
£51,000 and above £18,000

Businesses who have received a grant payment since November, will automatically receive the Restart Grant and do not need to apply again.

Check if you are eligible for the Restart Grant.

Payments under this scheme will not be made before 1 April. Once audit checks are complete, the payments will be processed.

Please allow at least four weeks from application to receiving payment before contacting business@bristol.gov.uk.
