Covid-19 Additional Relief Fund (CARF)

The Government announced a new Covid-19 Additional Relief Fund (CARF) of £1.5 billion.

The purpose of the fund is to support those businesses affected by the pandemic but that were ineligible for existing support linked to business rates.

The £1.5 billion has been allocated to local authorities based upon the estimated rateable value in each local authority rating list which falls within the scope of the fund.

Charnwood Borough Council has been awarded £4.1m.

The relief is only available to reduce chargeable amounts in respect of 2021/22 Business Rates bills only.

Appeals for all Covid-19 business grants

There is no right to appeal, and the decision of the Council is final. As set out in the Business Grant Fund Policy, the Council’s interpretation of the guidance is at its own discretion and it will be the final arbiter of the definitions contained within this policy.
