EXCLUDING B&Bs and guesthouses etc, do you work from home?This is to exclude businesses that are purely run from home that don't trade elsewhere and would therefore not have any fixed premises cost.
Which category of the grant scheme are you applying to?Businesses that weren't included in the priority scheme or the government priority list can still apply, please select 'other.'
