Bed and Breakfast Hardship Fund now open

B&Bs operating from a personal bank account can now apply for a share of £3 million as part of the Scottish Government Business Support Fund.

Small B&Bs, who were not eligible for other support due to not having a business bank account, will now be able to apply for a share of £3 million of funding which has been re-purposed from the Newly Self-Employed Hardship Fund.

This fund is to provide hardship relief to B&Bs and other small-serviced accommodation businesses through a one-off payment of £3,000.

You need to apply directly through your Local Authority. If you have any queries regarding this fund, please contact your Local Authority for more information.
