Subsidy Conditions (previously known as State Aid)

COVID-19 business grant subsidy allowance

The EU State aid rules no longer apply to subsidies granted in the UK following the end of the transition period. From 4 March 2021, new subsidy allowances were established for the COVID-19 business grants schemes, on the basis of the principles set out in Article 3.4 of the Trade and Cooperation Agreement. There are three subsidy allowances for this scheme:

  • Small Amounts of Financial Assistance Allowance – the business is allowed up to £335,000 (subject to exchange rates) over any period of three years
  • COVID-19 Business Grant Allowance – the business is allowed up to £1,900,000
  • COVID-19 Business Grant Special Allowance - if limits under the Small Amounts of Financial Assistance Allowance and COVID-19 Business Grant Allowance have been reached, the business may be able to access a further allowance of funding under these scheme rules of up to £10,000,000, provided certain conditions are met

Please see supporting guidance notes for more information.

Grants under these allowances may be combined for a potential total allowance of £12,235,000 (taking into account all grants previously received under the COVID-19 business grants schemes and subject to the exact amount applicable under the Small Amounts of Financial Assistance Allowance).
