Reigate and Banstead Business support grant (up to £1,000 on-going)
We want to support our local businesses from window cleaners starting up, to web design companies wishing to take on more staff. It couldn't be easier, simply fill in the application form and send it over to us along with the required supporting evidence.
The business support grant of up to £1,000 is available to businesses wishing to start, develop or grow.
If you live in the borough or your business is based in the borough with less than 4 employees, you could be eligible. Grants can be used to help fund new or improved equipment like machinery, tools or IT and training. Simply fill in the online appliction, then you will be invited in for an interview to discuss your business ideas. The interview will take place online and will take about 20 mins.
Businesses who are successful in their business support grant applications will also get a free years membership to Enterprise Nation.
A second grant can be awarded. To qualify you must be able to demonstrate growth since being awarded the initial grant and have strong and concrete growth plans which the grant will help you achieve.
A second grant would be considered for recruitment costs to take on additional staff or an apprentice. We will not consider second applications for replacement equipment.
