Chancellor Rishi Sunak has announced new emergency support for non-essential businesses affected by England’s third coronavirus lockdown. A one-off grant of up to £9,000 will be available to retail, hospitality and leisure businesses, including local outlets such as florists and salons which have been ordered to close until at least February 22. The Treasury said the new support grants will offer companies up to £9,000 through to March as part of a £4.6billion package “to support businesses as protect jobs”. This will start at £4,000 and increase in line with the firm’s rateable value. In total, an estimated 600,000 properties are expected to benefit, however, many groups have warned they will be excluded from the new support, despite mandated closures. “My business has to shut (English Language school for international students).
