Slane councillor, Wayne Harding, is reminding small businesses around the county that an assistance scheme for Covid is now in place.
The Fianna Fáil man posted on Facebook, ‘The expanded Small Business Assistance Scheme for COVID is now open for applications. Closing date for this scheme is 21st July 2021.
Phase 2 of this scheme has been expanded to include those that had previously been ineligible. Businesses working from non-rateable premises such as a home office or hot-desk are now eligible to apply and if they meet the other eligibility criteria will receive a grant of €4,000.
Businesses with a turnover between €20,000 and €49,999 are also now eligible to apply if they meet the other eligibility criteria and will receive a grant of €1,000.
