ARG3 Application Form

Swale Borough Council - Additional Restrictions Grant Application Form

The government has made funding available for businesses through the Additional Restrictions Grant.

Eligible businesses can apply for an Additional Restrictions Grant for the following four periods of restrictions*

Please indicate which one of the above time periods this application relates to. Please note, if you wish to apply for more than one time period, you will need to apply for each time period your business was affected. If you have already received a grant for any of these time periods you cannot, we will not be issuing a second grant.

*IMPORTANT – If your business is registered for business rates and has been instructed to close in the time period you are applying for, you will need to complete an application for the Local Restrictions Support Grant (Closed) scheme which can be found here.

The basic idea of the grant is simple - financial support for businesses forced to close or significantly impacted by the national restrictions. You are eligible to apply for a grant if one of the following applies*

Section 1 - Personal Details


Section 2 - About Your Business

Registered Name*
Business Type (Ltd company, charity etc)*
Company Registration Number
Date Established*

Section 3 - Business Fixed Costs

These grants are calculated based on the rateable values for commercial properties and/or the regular fixed costs incurred by a business (excluding any staff related costs). Please indicate what your monthly fixed costs total: *

Please upload a recent (within last 3 months) bank statement highlighted to show these payments. Your grant will be calculated based on your regular fixed costs so try to evidence as much as possible in order to maximise your grant eligibility. For annual payments, you can upload evidence from when the payment was made.*

In no more than 200 words, please provide an explanation on how your business has been impacted by the restrictions for the period you are applying for. Please provide as much detail as possible including specific loss amounts where known*
