Recent from The Telegraph:
The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Rishi Sunak announces £4.6bn in business grants to get through lockdown” – below is their description.
Closed businesses are in line for grants of up to £9,000 in the latest effort to keep companies afloat through another lockdown.
A total of £4.6bn is on offer from the Treasury, of which £4bn comes in the form of one-off top-up grants, with the remaining £594m going to local authorities to offer discretionary support to affected companies.
It comes on top of the up to £3,000 a month being handed to businesses ordered to stop trading and £2,100 that had been available to those affected by tier 2 restrictions.
Effectively the new package doubles the support on offer, as this latest one-off grant covers the spring, and so amounts to £3,000 per month.
