COVID-19 Additional Relief Fund (CARF) was announced in the 2021 Budget. The Government has subsequently announced further details of the allocations and how the CARF is expected to operate.
The Council is currently designing a local scheme to provide a reduction in business rates for 2021/22.
Only businesses that:
- have not received Expanded Retail Discount (applies to Retail Hospitality and Leisure) or the Nursery Discount in 2021/22
- are not unoccupied
- have been adversely affected by the pandemic and have been unable to adequately adapt to that impact
Further details will be released here shortly and further government guidance can be found on GOV.UK website
