If your business is in England, in the retail, hospitality or leisure sector, you will receive a cash grant of up to £25,000 per property.

If your business is in Scotland in the retail, hospitality or leisure sector, you will receive a cash grant of up to £25,000 per business.

For a small business owner with four bars, this funding is crucial to help us pay the mounting overheads on the properties while we're closed. £6,250 per bar will not cover our costs and threatens the future of both the staff and the company.

These are difficult times and it's likely to be tough once we're back to work. The Scottish Government should show parity to all business and not hobble those who have worked hard to expand a business, create jobs and pay taxes.
