Cheshire West Council hands out £8.5m in grants to help businesses through COVID-19

7 April 2020

The Cheshire West Business Rates team are currently administering grants to around 6,000 eligible businesses.

Currently the best way for an eligible business to check if they have received the grant is to keep checking their account; this process may take a few weeks.  Each business receiving a grant will be sent a remittance letter to detail the payment however this will go to the business address and may arrive after the money goes into the account.

Prior to administering the grants, the Business Rates team were required to go through a process of capturing the bank details for businesses where we don’t hold any bank information; where a business doesn’t pay business rates by direct debit or qualifies for small business rate relief.

If you need to register your business bank details please follow the link on the Cheshire West and Chester Council website.
