Change to Local Authority Discretionary Grant Scheme

Good News: updated guidance published this Saturday means that those small businesses that are claiming Self Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) will be eligible for Local Authority Discretionary Grants.  We are still waiting for details about how Local Authorities will distribute these grants but at least those who have claimed SEISS will not be excluded and we are hoping that farm diversification businesses not paying business rates (eg farmhouse B&Bs) might benefit.
