COVID-19 Additional Relief Fund (CARF)

On Wednesday 15 December, the Government released guidance for the Covid-19 Additional Relief Fund. First announced in March 2020, this relief fund will be available to support those businesses affected by the pandemic but ineligible for other support linked to business rates.

We are currently reviewing the guidance and will be contacting businesses eligible for the rate relief scheme in the new year.

Please note, ratepayers who either are or would have been eligible for the Extended Retail Discount (covering Retail, Hospitality and Leisure), the Nursery Discount or the Airport and Ground Operations Support Scheme (AGOSS) are ineligible for this scheme
