Sheffield City Region has secured funding to support local businesses in the supply chain of businesses in hospitality, accommodation, leisure and entertainment sectors which have been forced to close.
To be eligible the supply chain business must:
- Be located in South Yorkshire.
- Be able to demonstrate significant links within the SY supply chain.
- Demonstrate a significant loss of trade as a result of local restrictions (T2/T3/National).
- Have been open and trading on 13 October 2020.
- Be able to demonstrate that the business activity is largely involved in supplying the hospitality, accommodation, leisure and entertainment sector on a business to business basis i.e. not retail to the public.
- Have fixed property costs – identified by rateable value or rent. Storage facilities directly associated with the business would represent eligible property costs.
- The scheme excludes national and large companies.
Where eligible, the following support will be awarded:
These payments, based on rateable value, will be made automatically if previously paid.
|Supply Chain||RV £1 – £15,000||RV £15,001 – £50,999||RV Over £51,000|
|*Payment 2 (January lockdown)||£1,868||£2,800||£4,200|
*New applicants will receive the full (total) payment
**Previous applicants will receive the January Lockdown payment.
Scheme will close on 16th February
The scheme is designed to support supply chain businesses where the majority of the businesses activity is supplying to the hospitality, accommodation, leisure and entertainment sectors, and so are experiencing a significant loss of trade due to local and national restrictions. Examples may include breweries, catering companies and service and goods providers to restaurants and hotels. The scheme will also support companies involved in events, conferences, exhibitions, weddings, banqueting and travel companies and operators.
