Register your Business for the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme

The Eat Out to Help Out scheme was announced by the Government to encourage people to get back to eating out. You can now register your business to participate in this scheme.

Eat Out to Help Out

This scheme will offer diners 50% off Monday to Wednesday on meals and non-alcoholic drinks, up to £10 per person, when eating at participating restaurants, bars, cafes and other establishments that have registered. This scheme will run for the month of August.

Businesses will be reimbursed the discount by the Government. Businesses that want to participate in the scheme will have to register here. Registration closes on 31 August.

Each week in August, beginning 7 August, businesses can then claim the money back, with the funds in their bank account within five working days. The service to reclaim money will close on 30 September.
