The Chancellor has announced a new one-off top-up grant which will be available for businesses in the retail, hospitality, and leisure sectors. The grants will be worth up to £9,000 per property. This grant is available on top of business rates relief and the furlough scheme, which has already been extended until 30 April 2021. In addition, the Chancellor has confirmed that a £594m discretionary fund will be made available for those businesses affected outside of the sectors previously mentioned. This new package of measures is worth a total of £4.6bn across the UK.
