I have 3 venues in Liverpool and combined we have a rental total payable of £16400 per month. We closed in March when instructed to do so and if we open on the same date in July that is 4 months of payments totalling £65,600. How is that possible to pay? Even with the hospitality grants received it doesn’t come close to covering this amount and the likely hood we will not be opening for some time after July. All hospitality businesses are now spiralling head first into significant debt and we will see many thousands of them close without some extra support unfortunately costing business owners and staff their jobs.
