Retail, Leisure and Hospitality Grant

In March, the government also announced a grant of up to £25,000 for all business in the retail, leisure and hospitality sector with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000.

We wrote to all eligible businesses seeking confirmation of bank details so that we could make payments via BACS as soon as possible, encouraging them to email their BACS details to business.rates@reading.gov.uk to ensure prompt payment. Where BACS details were already held, a payment was made automatically.
