Update - Friday 15th January 2021
Diane Dodds announced a grant scheme to provide support to directors of limited companies, the scheme is worth £20m and initially offers grants of £1,000. In this update we have outlined the scheme and eligibility criteria for the scheme below. We have summarised the support available to the non-essential businesses that remain closed and also looked at up-coming closing dates for funding applications.
Limited Company Director's Support Scheme
There has been limited support given to directors of limited companies to date and this scheme will provide an initial one-off taxable grant of £1,000 to eligible directors. There is £20m allocated to the fund and, at scheme closure, any underspend will be distributed equally amongst approved applicants in the form of a top-up grant, up to a maximum of £3,500.
Note that directors will only be eligible for one grant regardless of the number of directorships held.
Applications will open on 21st January 2021.
- You are a resident of Northern Ireland.
- You are a Person with Significant Control (PSC) for the company/companies listed in your application
- You must work in the company/companies named in your application.
- At 31 March 2020 at least 50% of your income came from your director’s salary and dividends.
- If you are a director of more than one company then your salary and dividends from all companies must represent at least 50% of your total income.
- Your projected salary and dividends from the company for the 2020/21 financial year is 40% lower than it would have been in the absence of coronavirus. If applicable, this should include any furloughed income received.
- Your total projected taxable income for 2020/21 is less than £50k
Businesses must have been impacted by reduced demand and are currently trading and intend to continue to trade. Directors of businesses that have temporarily had to cease trading due to covid-19 will be eligible for the grant.
Support for businesses that have to close due to extension of restrictions
Localised Restrictions Support Scheme
Businesses that have been successful in their application to this grant do not need to reapply for the period of the extension to restrictions as payments will be made automatically. If any business did not previously apply for the grant, the application process remains open.
The fund provides grants of between £800 and £1,600 per week depending on the Net Annual Value of the property.
Covid Restrictions Business Support
Part A and Part B have reopened for applications. If you have already applied for a grant for either of these grants you do not have to reapply as support will be automatically be issued to successful application for the period up to 5 February 2021.
Part A provides a grant of £600 per week for businesses that have been required to close under the restrictions and who are not eligible for the Localised Restrictions Support Scheme
Part B provides grants of between £300 and £800 per week (depending on whether they pay business rates and the Net Annual Value of the property) to business that are not named in the restrictions but which supplies goods or services to such a business, or is reliant upon such a business being open and fully operational in order to trade.
Wet Pubs Business Support Scheme
This scheme is open to wet pubs whose premises were required to close during the period from 4 July to 23 September 2020. Businesses will receive a one-off payment of between £800 and £1,600 per week.
There is no application form for this grant as a pre-eligible check will be carried out and businesses who are considered eligible will receive an email with a form to compete by 22 January 2021. This form must be completed and returned within 5 days of receipt. We imagine that there will be cases of emails going to spam folders so pub owners should keep an eye on their emails over the next few weeks.
- The business is eligible for the Localised Restrictions Support Scheme.
- The business was closed for at least one full week during the period 4 July to 23 September 2020.
- Wet pubs that have an attached off licence business are eligible for support if the wet pub element of their business was closed.
- Businesses must have been actively trading before they were forced to close due to COVID-19 lockdown/restrictions.
Key deadlines coming up

Update - Wednesday 25th November
The Finance Minister announced a £300m support package on Monday 23 November which includes over £200m to support businesses which continue to be impacted by COVID-19. A further £150m is being held centrally for longer term support on business rates and Connor Murphy has said that he hopes to extend the current 1 year rates holiday for hospitality, tourism, retail, childcare and airports for a further 6 months.
The key support packages are:
- £95m High Street Voucher Scheme in which households will be eligible for pre-paid voucher to support local businesses. It is initially thought that the voucher will be worth £200 and will not be redeemable online as the aim is to support local shops and businesses – however the exact value of the voucher has not yet been confirmed.
- £55m to extend the Localised Restriction Support Scheme to include non-essential retail, leisure and entertainment businesses which have been forced to close.
- £20m to support company directors - this will be welcomed as many company directors have not received any support to date. There is no information at this stage on what the support will look like or what the eligibility criteria will be.
- £20m to extend the 12 month rate holiday to the manufacturing sector.
- £10.6m to 1,000 wet pubs.
- £5m for B&B's.
- £3m to help local businesses to grow their online sales.
- £5m to support charities.
- A further £2.25m support for the Social Enterprise Support Fund which has previously oversubscribed.
- £10m to sporting organisations.
We sent an email last week with some key dates for the various support schemes and many of these dates fall in the next few weeks.

Covid Restrictions Business Support Scheme
Economy Minister Diane Dodds has announced support for those businesses who have been impacted by the recent restrictions but who were not eligible for support under the Localised Restriction Support Scheme ("LRSS"). This has followed criticism that LRSS excluded many businesses who were suppliers of businesses that were closed and businesses that did not operate out of commercial premises.
The business is restricted within the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No.2) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2020 but is not eligible for the Localised Restrictions Support Scheme (LRSS)
the business meets all of the following:
- is within the supply chain of businesses restricted by the Regulations and as a result has been significantly impacted
- is operating in Northern Ireland and was trading immediately prior to 16 October 2020
- is not included in the scope of funding already allocated to Executive Departments to respond to COVID restrictions
Level of support available
- Businesses that are required to close but were not eligible for LRSS are eligible for a grant of £600 per week
- Businesses that are not required to close but are within the supply chain of businesses restricted by the Regulations are eligible for a grant but it will depend on their NAV:
- £400 per week for businesses with a NAV that does not exceed £15,000
- £600 per week for businesses where the NAV exceeds £15,000 but doesn't exceed £51,000
- £800 per week for businesses where the NAV exceeds £51,000
- Businesses must demonstrate that they are in the direct supply chain of one or more businesses restricted by the Regulations and have been significantly impacted.
- Businesses that do not occupy commercial premises and which are experiencing a significant decline in turnover can apply for a grant of £300 per week
When can you apply
The scheme is due to open shortly and we will provide further information as it is released.
Job Support Scheme
This scheme is for businesses that remain open but face reduced demand. The JSS Open will allow employees to work shorter hours and still receive at least 73% of their normal wages where they earn £3,125 per month or less.
- Employees need to work a minimum of 20% of their usual hours and the employer will pay for the hours worked
- Employees will receive 66.67% of their normal pay for hours not worked
- The employer will pay 5% of the reference salary for the hours not worked up to max of £125 per month
- The Government will pay the remainder of 61.67% of the reference salary for the hours not worked up to a max of £1,541.75
- JSS Open does not cover NICs or pension contributions
This scheme is for businesses who have been legally required to close their premises and ceased work as a minimum of 7 consecutive (or calendar) days as a direct result of coronavirus restrictions.
- Employees who cannot work due to restrictions will receive 66.67% of their normal pay to a max of £2,083.33 per month
- JSS Closed does not cover NICs or pension contributions
Businesses required to close as a result of specific workplace outbreaks by local public health authorities are not eligible for this scheme.
Both JSS Open and JSS Closed
- Employees were on PAYE payroll between 6 April 2019 and 23 September 2020
- If employees ceased employment after 23 September 2020 and were subsequently rehired, employers can claim for them
- Employees can be on any type of contract including zero hours or temporary contracts
- Employees do not need to have been furloughed under the JRS to be eligible for JSS.
JSS Open specific criteria
In addition to the criteria above:
- an employer with 250 or more employees on 23 September 2020 has undertaken a Financial Impact Test showing that their turnover has remained equal of decreased. More details on the Financial Impact Test are on the following link
- an employer with less than 250 employees on 23 September 2020 is not required to satisfy the test
- some, or all, of their employees are working reduced hours - employees must still be working for at least 20% of their usual hours
JSS Closed specific criteria
In addition to the criteria above:
- primary work place is at the premises that have been legally required to close as a direct result of coronavirus restrictions
- employees that are eligible must have been instructed by the employer to cease work for a minimum period of at least 7 consecutive calendar days
- To be eligible for the grant, employers must have reached written agreement with their employee that they have been instructed to and agree to stop working for a minimum of 7 consecutive calendar days
Other points to consider
- Employers cannot claim for employees who have been made redundant or are serving their notice period. However, the guidance does allow employees who ceased employment after 23 September to be rehired – we expect there to be further clarification on the rules around this.
- Large employers are expected not to make capital distributions whilst claiming JSS (dividends, charge etc)
- Employers claiming JSS may still claim the Job Retention Bonus in respect of these employees.
How to claim
The claim portal will be open from 8 December 2020 for pay periods ending in November. More detail will be published on this shortly.
Self-Employed Income Support Scheme
The level of grant available under the SEISS has doubled from the initial level announced. There are two grants available covering the periods November 2020 to January 2021 and February 2021 to April 2021.
The underlying eligibility criteria remains the same as per the previous grants but applicants will have to declare that either:
- are currently actively trading but are impacted by reduced demand due to coronavirus
- were previously trading but are temporarily unable to do so due to coronavirus
This differs to previous declarations as applicants had to say that they had been ‘impacted’ and this could have covered situations such as self-isolation. This grant requires applicants to declare that they have had a reduction in demand due to covid-19.
What of the level of support?
- Grant 1: 40% of average monthly trading profits which will be paid out in a single payment covering 3 months of profit and this is capped at £3,750.
- Grant 2: The Government has not confirmed the level of the grant and have said that they will set this is due course
