14. Business update

Our business rates team continues to provide much needed grants to local businesses. Almost £30m has been paid to 2528 eligible businesses, so far and we’re still waiting to hear from 1500 businesses. We urge them to follow the advice in the letter or email they have been sent and claim their grant.

If you believe you should have received a notification from us, please check the criteria online  and if you qualify, please email:

For businesses that do not meet the criteria for grants and other forms of support, we are compiling a record of these types of businesses and are feeding this information back to central Government.

Businesses can access tailored one-to-one business advice from the South West Growth Hub.Tel: 0800 592 872.

Government has launched a new Business Hub, providing clear advice on the financial support available and how to access help.
