SMEs and microenterprises can now apply for the Small Business Assistance Scheme for COVID (SBASC) via a new streamlined application process through their Local Authority or Local Enterprise Office.
Microenterprises with a turnover of between €20,000 and €49,999 can apply for a €1,000 grant. Businesses with a turnover of €50,000 and over can apply for a grant of €4,000.

Following the recent launch of the Economic Recovery Plan 2021, the Government decided that businesses operating from non-rateable premises, such as a home office or hot-desk are now also eligible to apply.
