The above is for businesses that are required to close under the imposed coronavirus restrictions.
Businesses that have been told to close include non-essential retail, leisure, personal care, sport facilities and hospitality businesses.

To qualify your business must have been:
- Open as usual before the November lockdown restrictions
- Providing services in person to customers from the premises
- Required to close due to restrictions imposed by the government
