Is my business eligible?


To apply for a grant, you must be based in, or have a branch, in the UK at the point of payment. You may be able to apply for one, or both of the grants, but you must meet certain requirements depending on which grant you’re applying for.


Applicants must also be in good standing with HMRC. A business may not be in good standing where our records show applicants (including directors / owners / senior staff) have not complied with HMRC requirements, either currently or in the past. HMRC will make a proportionate decision whether or not an applicant will be disqualified on these grounds. Indicators could include a record of:

  1. overdue tax returns; or

  2. not paying tax or duties due (or not complying with any agreed Time to Pay arrangement with HMRC); or

  3. business administration or personal insolvency.
