Financial Support for Business


NFU Scotland will continue to provide up-to-date information relevant to our farming and crofting members, however, funding is being updated regularly, so it is important to keep up to date with the Scottish and UK government resources to help you navigate the support available.

Where can I find up to date information regarding business support from the UK and Scottish Government?

  • You can find business support information and guidance directly from Scottish Government, available here
  • Use the Find Business Support directory for current support packages, available here
  • Business Gateway have a list of support available for businesses, available here
  • The UK Government have also developed the Business Support Finder to help navigate the support available to businesses. The tool can be accessed here


What support packages should I be aware of?

Remember to check the Scottish and UK Government guidance for the most up-to-date information.

  • Businesses based in Scotland can check available funding support here
  • UK Government guidance is available here


What rate relief grant funding is available?

If you pay non-domestic rates, your property may be eligible for non-domestic rates relief. These discounts only apply to your non-domestic rates bill and won't directly reduce your rent, water charges or other bills.

If you think you may be eligible for any discounts on your bill, such as the Small Business Bonus Scheme, you can contact your local council to discuss eligibility. This service is free. Guidance about non-domestic rates relief from the Scottish Government is available here
 
You'll need to apply to your local council for some reliefs. You do not have to pay to apply. Be wary of anyone who proposes to apply on your behalf for a fee. Applications for rate relief should be made via your local authority. More information on how to apply is online, available here 


I have heard that finance payment ‘holidays’ are available, how can I access these?

Some finance providers are offering payment holidays to help farmers with cashflow. If you wish to take advantage of this, you should contact your provider to discuss. You should read any small print carefully to ensure that you are well informed to make a decision that is in the best interests of your business.
