  • SCIOs, CICs and Limited Companies eligible for business grant

    Created: 26/11/2020

    The Scottish Government's Coronavirus (COVID-19): Strategic Framework Business Fund offers grants for businesses* that are required to close by law as a result of COVID-19 restrictions.

    Who can apply?

    Whether your business is eligible for this fund will depend on where your premises are located and what level of restrictions are in place at any point in time. Check the protection level (tier) for your area here.

    You can apply if:

    • your business has been directly impacted by restrictions, and the type/sector is specifically mentioned in this list*
    • you have a business bank account - this is the account your grant will be paid into if your application is successful
    • your business is registered for non-domestic rates  - if you pay rates through a landlord rather than directly to a  local authority you can still apply but must provide evidence through a copy of the lease agreement.

    *Businesses include: Limited Companies (including social enterprises), Sole Traders, Trusts, Partnerships, Community Interest Companies or Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisations.

    Applications for this fund can be made here.
