Was your turnover down more than 30% ? You may be eligible for a grant.

You may be eligible for the Bucks Additional Restrictions Grant if you have been heavily impacted as a result of the COVID-19 restrictions during December 2020, and have not been able to get support through the Local Restrictions Support Grant scheme or the Self employed income support scheme. This is a separate ARG grant to the one that was available for Nov so you will need to apply afresh to this one if you think you are eligible.

The grant is open to applicants until 31 January 2021 at midnight.


You may be a business rates payer but it’s not essential to be eligible for this fund, but:

  • your business income in December 2020 must be at least 30% less than your business income in December 2019.

You will not be eligible if:

  • you are already eligible for the LRSG (closed, open or sector) from 2 December 2020.
  • you are a self-employed individual already receiving support through the government’s Self Employment Income Support Scheme.

In addition, your business must:

  • be based in Buckinghamshire – Milton Keynes based businesses should apply to the Milton Keynes Council for their version of this fund

The amount awarded will be determined by the number of employees in the business:–

Self employed ( Not claiming SEISS) £1,500
4 or less employees £2,250
5 or more employees £4,500
