Latest financial support for businesses


Leisure and hospitality businessesthat have been forced to close due to the latest Welsh Government restrictions & didn't apply for the initial firebreak grant, can apply for the following financial support based on the rateable value of their property:

  • A property with a rateable value of £12,000 or less, is eligible for a £3,000 payment
  • A property between £12,001 and £150,000, is eligible for a £5,000 payment.

Leisure and hospitality businessesthat applied & were accepted for the initial firebreak grant DO NOT need to apply, as a payment will be made to these businesses directly based on the details of their earlier application.

A Discretionary £2,000 payment is also available for businesses not liable to pay business rates to Cardiff Council that have been forced or required to close as a result of the national restrictions put in place for hospitality businesses, or who have seen turnover fall by at least a 40% as a direct result of the latest restrictions. This could include, for example, taxi drivers licensed in Cardiff who can show an impact of the restrictions on income.

The scheme will open at 12 o'clock today (15/12/20). For more information and to apply for the grants available, please visit Cardiff Council's website:
