Government support and grants for businesses affected by COVID-19 – our consolidated checklist updated

Posted on 5 May 2021

This page was last updated on 6 September 2021

We have updated our consolidated checklist of the key Government COVID-19 support schemes for businesses, now that a number of schemes have closed and others been modified. The checklist includes a brief description, eligibility criteria, availability date and application information in relation to the relevant scheme or grant. You may also find it handy to refer to our COVID-19: Government Support for Business Timeline, which – as well as grants and loans - also covers some of the insolvency related protections and shows when they will end.

Since Boris Johnson officially announced the first lockdown measures in the UK on 23 March 2020, the Government's measures to support businesses financially have come in a series of different announcements spread across multiple Government websites. These have been subject to a number of changes and further updates. Although many schemes are now closed, the Coronavirus Job Retention (furlough) Scheme and the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme remain available to the end of September 2021 and applications remain open for the recovery loan scheme.

So that you can easily see the current schemes while not losing track of schemes that are now closed, we have set out current and closed schemes in separate parts of the table.

While our checklist summarises the Government's support for businesses, there are other ways of managing the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on your business. If you would like to chat through your circumstances and the potential solutions available please let us know.
