Government support

The Government have announced new temporary business rate reliefs and grants for businesses in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Full range of business support measures available to UK businesses:

Bury Council support

We have created a special team to respond to the business crisis, co-ordinating the national, regional and local responses to the emergency.

We are doing all we can to support our local employers who are facing unprecedented challenges. Our measures aim to strike the balance between ensuring that businesses who can pay continue to do so, and that those who are suffering hardship are supported. 

Payments and debts

To support local businesses and reduce pressure at this time we will:

  • suspend our usual payment terms for SME's and make payments as promptly as we can; 
  • not send out debt reminders during April.

Bury Means Business Team - specialist advice and support

Our Bury Means Business Team works closely with local, regional and national support services to make sure businesses throughout the borough of Bury can access free, specialist advice and are supported to have a strong, successful and thriving business base.
