1. Round 2 of Additional Restrictions Grant
For the period 5.1.21-15.2.21, round 2 of the Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG2) is for businesses with fixed costs from any sector which have been severely affected by the latest lockdown. It is not for those businesses which are able to claim the Local Restrictions Support Grant (Closed) Addendum.
ARG2 is for:
Businesses which do not pay business rates must have been legally required to close between the 5th January and 15th February 2021
Any businesses not legally required to close which can demonstrate a 30% drop in turnover and can prove fixed costs of at least £250 per month.
Applications for ARG2 has been streamlined via eastdevon.gov.uk/arg.
Businesses which previously received an ARG1 payment for national restrictions from 5.11.20-2.12.20 automatically receive an access code to complete the short form.
