COVID-19 Self-Catering Business Grant

Support provided by Highland Council

What does this involve?

The Highland Council is making grants available for certain self-catering businesses within the Highland Council area. This is part of the Scottish Government response to the COVID-19 emergency.

 

Am I eligible?

Eligibility for this grant is defined by the Scottish Government. To be eligible: 

  • your business premises must have been registered as a self-catering unit on or before Tuesday 17 March 2020
  • your business premises are currently on the Non-Domestic Rates register (i.e. businesses who pay council tax will not qualify)

Self-catering businesses operating in an eligible premise that was in receipt of the Small Business Bonus Scheme and Rural Relief on or before 17 March 2020, can apply for a one-off grant of £10,000. They can also apply for grant support of £7,500 for additional properties which qualify under the Small Business Support Grant.

Self-catering businesses with a rateable value between £18,001 and up to and including £51,000, if operating in that sector on or before 17 March 2020, will be able to apply for a one-off grant of £25,000. They can also apply for grant support of £18,750 for additional properties which qualify under the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund.

If your business doesn't fit within the temporary framework for State Aid, then it is unlikely you will be eligible for this support.

What does this cost?

This is a free service. 

Who is this for?

This is for self-catering businesses based in the Highlands.
