JA: Have you talked to a tax professional about this?
Customer: Due to the coronavirus outbreak, I have lost plenty of bookings due to the nature of the business and I am wondering how do I obtain help from the government in regards ***** ***** cash grant and am I eligible for small business rates relief and how do I apply for it?

Customer: No I havent

Hi

 

All you need to see if you have an entitlement is here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-employers-and-businesses-about-covid-19/covid-19-support-for-businesses

This specifically for the leisure industry in which you fall into https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-employers-and-businesses-about-covid-19/covid-19-support-for-businesses#support-for-retail-hospitality-and-leisure-businesses-that-pay-business-rates where you can see you need do nothing as it will be applied from April 2020

Again regarding the grant you will be written to if you are eligible for this scheme

 

Thanks

 

Sam
