The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation announced earlier this month, details of a new Small Business grant scheme which is now available for small businesses in Cork . The Restart Grant has been allocated €250m in funding and will provide payments of between €2,000 and €10,000 to small business to help meet their cost of reopening after the lock-down.
Payments will be based on each firm’s own 2019 commercial rates bills. The grant will be available to businesses with a turnover of less than €5m and fewer than 50 employees. Applications will be open from today, Friday the 22nd of May, through the local authorities websites.
The scheme is for companies forced to close, or that suffered at least 25pc of a reduction in turnover as a result of the Covid-19 crisis. The grant can be used for measures needed to ensure employee and customer safety, defray ongoing fixed costs and for replenishing stock.
