South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC) has asked the Parish Council to pass on this information to residents:
Businesses in South Oxfordshire that are yet to submit their details for grant support in response to COVID-19 are urged to do so as soon as possible.
More than 65% of businesses based in southern Oxfordshire have already submitted their details and SODC has promised all those who have done so, and are eligible for support, that they will receive their grant money by 30th April.
However, with just under 35% of businesses still to submit their details, the council is urging all those who haven’t already done so, and who need funding support, to go to the council website and complete the online form.
So far more than 2,500 businesses have submitted their details for the grants which are available to help those affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. By the close of play on Monday 20th April, SODC and Vale of White Horse District Council had paid out more than £15 million in grant funding to local businesses.
For more information and to confirm your eligibility for a Small Business Grant please go to: www.southoxon.gov.uk/businessrates.
If you are self-employed and in urgent need of financial assistance, the government has advised that you should apply for Universal Credit and Council Tax Reduction. This will provide you with support until a grant for the self-employed becomes available in June.
