Support for Business

This page contains information and advice for businesses on both support available, how to stay safe, and key policy changes in light of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Government have set out a package of measures to support businesses including a dedicated portal for business which is available here . This sets out how to access the support that has been made available, who is eligible, when the schemes open and how to apply.

For further support you can contact the Government's Business Support Helpline on 0300 456 3565 and the HMRC helpline on 0800 0159 559, or use their online support tools available here .

Links to further information on key policies, support measures and advice, including for specific sectors, are available below.
