Please ensure you are using a recent bill as your account number may have altered slightly after a 2017 update to our business rates system):
  • • A previous grant application number (ideally the most recent grant you received from us as this will ensure we are paying the most up to date payment details);
  • • Details about you as the applicant;
  • • What type of business you run and a relevant unique identification number for your business;
  • • Your business bank account details and documentary evidence of this, (ONLY if these cannot be pre-populated from a previous grant application i.e. you have changed your bank details or you have not yet received a business grant from us). Please note that without this document we will not be able to process your payment. If your bank account address does not match the property address that you are applying for, please submit a utility bill for the business property as well. This will only apply where this information is not pre-populated from a previous grant application.
  • • How your business has been affected by the December local restrictions;

Please take your time to ensure that you are answering the questions fully and correctly, it is a criminal offence to knowingly or recklessly make a false statement to obtain grant funding.
