Government business grants are making a critical difference to Wyre Forest businesses affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Since last Friday (2 April 2020) Wyre Forest District Council's Revenues team has been working around the clock to get business grants into the bank accounts of eligible businesses. So far in Wyre Forest, £13 million pounds has been paid to 1120 businesses.

The Government recently announced as part of the national response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that it would pay £10,000 to all businesses that receive small business rate relief, and up to £25,000 to eligible businesses in the retail, hospitality, and leisure sectors depending on their rateable value.

Councillor Graham Ballinger, Leader of Wyre Forest District Council said, "Our team has been working harder than ever to make sure all eligible business have the funds paid into their bank accounts as soon as possible. They have done an incredible job in a remarkably short time period and we know from the many calls and emails we have received, that
this is making a massive difference for the district's businesses.

"If you haven't been contacted but think you may be eligible for small business rates relief or retail discounts, please contact us by email: ctax@wyreforestdc.gov.uk."
