The Department of Enterprise Trade & Employment has recently launched the Small Business Assistance Scheme for COVID (SBASC) which is intended to target those businesses with operating costs that do not qualify for the COVID Restrictions Support Scheme (CRSS) operated by the Revenue Commissioners. The eligibility criteria for both schemes are similar. The main difference between SBASC and CRSS is the requirement, in the case of CRSS, for the public to have access to a business premises. SBASC also aligns with recently announced grant schemes for the tourism, arts and entertainment sectors. 

The grant, which is available as a contribution towards fixed costs to assist a business to keep operational for an eventual re-opening, is only available to an applicant operating from a rateable property. The scheme covers the period 1 January 2021 to 30 June 2021.  Each eligible applicant will receive a payment of €4,000 with an additional payment of €4,000 from May 2021 to applicants continuing to meet the scheme eligibility criteria, which is set out in Frequently Asked Questions below.

  1. Sa chás go bhfuil áitribh iolracha gnó ag fiontar a chomhlíonann na critéir láimhdeachais agus a thabhaíonn costais agus rátaí íocaíochta, féadfaidh siad iarratas a dhéanamh ar gach áitreabh.
  2. Sa chás go gcuirtear an cuntas rátaí chuig tiarna talún le haghaidh gnólachtaí aon tionónta amháin nó níos mó ní mór an deontas a chur isteach agus a íoc leis an ngnó oibriúcháin i ngach cás.
  3. Féadfaidh gnólachtaí a bhfuil roinnt asraonta acu a ndéantar rátáil ar leithligh orthu iarratas a dhéanamh ar dheontais ar leithligh. Tá siopa saincheadúnais atá neamhspleách ar bhonn airgeadais agus trádála incháilithe má chomhlíonann sé na critéir eile.

Níl SCGBC le clúdach i leith caillteanais ioncaim, is ranníocaíocht é le costais sheasta, níl laghduithe páirteach láimhdeachais do ghnó laistigh d’áitribh incháilithe

Mar sin féin, níl seirbhísí eile nach n-oibríonn ó áitribh inrátaithe incháilithe.

15. Is trádálaí sráide mé a íocann rátaí le m’údarás áitiúil, an bhfuil mé incháilithe?

20. Conas a shíneoidh mé an fhoirm?

Ba chóir síniú clóscríofa a áireamh ar an bhfoirm.

21. Mura bhfuilim sásta leis an gcinneadh chun mé a dhiúltú don deontas, an féidir liom achomharc a dhéanamh?
