Plan for Jobs

Chancellor increases financial support for businesses

Today the Chancellor announced increased support for businesses:-

  • open businesses which are experiencing considerable difficulty will be given extra help to keep staff on as government significantly increases contribution to wage costs under the Job Support Scheme, and business contributions drop to 5%
  • business grants are expanded to cover businesses in particularly affected sectors in high-alert level areas, helping them stay afloat and protecting jobs
  • grants for the self-employed doubled to 40% of previous earnings

As well as the above, the full details of the support available to businesses including the Job Support Scheme and Local Restrictions Support Grant, can be found using the Business support finder tool.
