On 17 December 2021 the Government announced that it would provide Local Authorities with a new COVID-19 Additional Relief Fund (CARF). The fund will be available to support those businesses affected by the pandemic but who are ineligible for existing support linked to business rates in 2021/2022. We are currently reviewing the guidance and will update this page as soon as possible.
The government has announced today (21 December 2021) additional economic support to help businesses who have been most impacted by the Omicron variant. The government is introducing a new grant scheme to support businesses that are experiencing difficulties because of this. Hospitality and leisure premises will benefit from targeted grant support. The Additional Restrictions Grant will also be topped-up so local authorities (LAs) can continue to use their discretion to support other businesses in their area, based on local economic need. The council is awaiting guidance on this grant, this web page will be updated once we have received guidance.

Business rates

Business rates is the commonly-used term for non-domestic rates. Non-domestic rates are charged on most non-domestic premises, including commercial properties such as shops, offices, pubs, warehouses, and factories. The council calculates and collects non-domestic rates on behalf of central government. The money raised is then used to help fund local services like the police and fire and rescue services.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are running on a reduced service and therefore only taking emergency calls. We understand this is a difficult time. If you are having difficulties paying, please contact us immediately via email at business.rates@eastriding.gov.uk.
