Registration is now open for businesses* to apply for the Small Business Support Grant Scheme.

The first payment in the Scheme will be made on 31 March if not before, to those eligible businesses whose bank account details are held by Land & Property Services (LPS), for the purpose of paying rates by Direct Debit.

Eligible businesses that LPS don’t currently hold bank account details for, can complete the following online registration form (see link below).


A grant of £25,000 will be provided to companies in the retail, tourism and hospitality sectors with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000. Work is continuing to enable the payment of this grant to qualifying businesses.

If you have any queries please contact the BID by emailing info@belfastone.co.uk.

* Applicable to those small businesses who are currently in the receipt of the Small Business Rate Relief Scheme (i.e. all businesses with a NAV up to £15,000).
