COVID-19 Business Support

On 21 December the Scottish Government provided an update on new business support arrangements, including schemes to be administered by local authorities.

We are awaiting offer letters and guidance in relation to these funds from the Scottish Government prior to funds being distributed locally. However, it is anticipated that when the criteria is confirmed we will be able to approach eligible businesses directly to arrange payment at the earliest opportunity.

In the meantime, businesses are encouraged to visit the Find Business Support website for information on all available funds at this time.

Business helpline

  • a national helpline for Scottish businesses concerned about the impact of COVID-19 is available
