What is Part B of the Northern Ireland CRBSS scheme?

Part B of the CRBSS is aimed at businesses that supply goods and services, either directly or indirectly, to businesses defined in the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No.2) Regulations.

Part B is also aimed at businesses that are dependent on a business named in the Health Protection Restrictions (No.2) Regulations being open and fully operational in order for it to operate.

If eligible, businesses will receive a one-off taxable grant.

Northern Ireland CRBSS grant will “depend on the circumstances of the business”.

The amount of grant will depend on the circumstances of the business.

For eligible businesses paying business rates directly to LPS, the grant payable will be based on the Net Annual Value of the property and range from £1,600 to £3,200.
