In response to the coronavirus pandemic, the government announced there would be extra support for small businesses, and businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors.
Tower Hamlets Council has identified eligible ratepayers and has started issuing grant payments to local businesses by issuing them directly to their bank accounts.
The council has also identified and contacted business rate account holders we believe may qualify for the grant payment, but whose business bank details we do not hold.
We have so far contacted the those who may qualify by email on 3 April 2020. Please read more and take action if required.
