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

Factsheets have been produced, setting out further details on the policies announced on 21 December.

New Business Grants
The government is introducing a new grant scheme to support businesses that are experiencing difficulties because of the Omicron variant. Hospitality and leisure premises will benefit from targeted grant support. 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)
The Statutory Sick Pay Rebate scheme (SSPRS) allows small and medium sized employers to claim the costs of up to two weeks of Covid-related SSP.
