The 'Help to Grow' additional funding opportunity

Launched in January, Help to Grow: Digital offers businesses free and impartial advice and the chance to apply for a financial discount worth up to £5,000 towards the costs of purchasing approved, productivity enhancing software, with the initial focus on digital accounting and customer relationship management.

The scheme can help businesses save time and money, so boosting their performance and growth by becoming more innovative, more competitive, and more profitable. Research by the Enterprise Research Council and the Office for National Statistics has found that adopting digital technologies is linked to business productivity increases of 7-25%. The programmes are open to businesses with 5-249 employees. Both will continue to develop and scale - the scope of technologies covered by the Help to Grow: Digital financial discount will expand and Help to Grow: Management will be rolled out to more business schools.

The Covid 19 Additional Relief fund rate relief scheme

Earlier in the month East Lindsey District Council contacted potential who were potentially eligible for the Covid 19 Additional Relief fund rate relief scheme.

The fund is designed to support those businesses affected by the pandemic that are ineligible for existing support linked to business rates, and those eligible could receive up to 100% rate relief.

Businesses have until 5pm on Friday 13 May to apply. Potentially eligible businesses will need to apply online, quoting the CARF reference shown on the letter issued to them. Only contacted businesses should apply.

More details on the scheme can be found in the Discretionary Rate Relief Policy on the Council's website, click on the link HERE
