The Coronavirus (COVID-19) Support Scheme for Self-Catering Businesses provides financial help for self-catering businesses across Scotland. It will help those that have been ineligible for the various funding packages announced by the Scottish Government following the outbreak of the pandemic.
The £1 million fund is administered via VisitScotland working closely with the Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers (ASSC).
The fund was open to self-catering businesses in Scotland with a rateable value of up to £50,999 which have not received any funding from any other Scottish Government Scheme following COVID-19. Businesses must have been registered as paying Non-Domestic Rates on the 17 March 2020.
To be eligible for the grant businesses had to meet the eligibility criteria and provide supporting documentation.
Successful applicants were eligible to receive a one-off grant of £10,000.
Applicants had an automatic reply from VisitScotland advising the application was received.
