The Covid Restrictions Business Support Scheme is a new support scheme from the Department for the Economy. It is designed to provide support to those businesses directly impacted by the Northern Ireland Health Protection Regulations, which came into force on Friday 16 October.
The Covid Restrictions Business Support Scheme is administered by Invest NI on behalf of the Department for the Economy (DfE).
The Covid Restrictions Business Support Scheme (CRBSS) will operate in two parts.
- Part A - A business that is required to close or cease trading under the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No.2) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2020 but is not eligible for the Localised Restrictions Support Scheme.
- Part B - A business that is not named in the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No.2) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2020, but which supplies goods or services to such a business, or is reliant upon such a business being open and fully operational in order to trade.
