Covid-19: HMT sets out economic support package

Released 21 December 2021

The government has announced additional economic support to help businesses who have been most impacted by the Omicron variant.

The support measures include:

new business grants available for hospitality and leisure premises. The Additional Restrictions Grant will also be topped up so local authorities (LAs) can continue to use their discretion to support other businesses in their area, based on local economic need;

Statutory Sick Pay Rebate scheme (SSPRS) allowing small and medium sized employers to claim the costs of up to two weeks of covid-related SSP.

Further details can be found at Covid-19 economic support package.
