The Visitor Accommodation Support Scheme provides business support funding to registered visitor accommodation businesses, with valid boarding permits, who have been impacted by the covid restrictions.
The Policy and Resources Committee have now agreed to phase 2 of this scheme, which will provide support for a further 12 months to March 2022, should there be no meaningful resumption of visitor activity during the period.
This scheme is distinct from the payroll co-funding scheme and the small business grant, neither of which apply to businesses in the visitor accommodation sector.
Those businesses that successfully applied for support in phase 1 of this scheme will automatically be enrolled in phase 2 of the scheme.
The guidance provided here outlines the support available and the application process.
