B&B’s and Self-catering businesses who pay Council Tax, can now for one week only, apply for grant support from the Small Accommodation Providers Paying Council Tax Fund.
Applications are invited between 15 and 22 March from eligible businesses.
Grants of £2,000, payable every 4 weeks, backdated to the start of January 2021 are available.
Highland Council’s Economy & Regeneration Manager, Andy McCann, said:
“As this grant scheme has only a very short window of opportunity to apply, we ask that if you are a B&B or a self-catering business who pays Council Tax, to go immediately to the Council’s website and carefully read the guidance.
“Those of you who are then eligible, please gather the bank and business evidence required and apply using our online form.
“Already, as part of this grant scheme we have written out to those B&B and self-catering businesses who pay Council Tax who secured grant earlier in 2020.
“The vast majority of these businesses have already replied to us and we have approved payment with grants being paid in the coming days.”
