We are backing a national campaign to call for urgent Government action to save businesses
A series of sector specific measures are being called for by the Bounce Back Better Campaign after national consultation with Business Improvement Districts, local authorities, destinations and other industry groups.
The campaign calls for:
+ A one-off ‘bounce back’ grant of up to £15,000 to retail, leisure and hospitality businesses.
+ Pause employer national insurance contributions for furloughed employees in the retail, leisure and hospitality sector through to 31 March 2021.
+ To provide an extension of 100% business rates holiday for 2021/22 for retail, leisure and hospitality sector with a rateable value up to £150,000.
+ To provide an extension of VAT reduction scheme for retail, leisure and hospitality from 5 April 2021 to 4th April 2022.
