Isle of Anglesey County Council, the Welsh Government and UK Government are working to support businesses through the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak. 

The latest business advice from the Welsh Government


Some businesses may be eligible for the latest ERF Sector Specific grant scheme which is directly managed by the Welsh Government and is accessible from the Business Wales website from the 13 January.

The Welsh Government has announced a package of financial business support linked to the Christmas period restrictions.

These grants provide financial assistance to businesses that are facing operational and financial challenges caused by the national lockdown announced for Wales as a result of COVID-19. 

This is a grant to provide financial assistance to freelancers in the cultural and creative sectors that are facing financial challenges as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

This grant closed to applications in June 2020 and new applications cannot be considered.

The Welsh Government funded two non-repayable grants linked to the business rates payable properties.

Grants of either £10,000 or £25,000 were administered by local authorities across Wales, and some 2,000 Anglesey businesses received grants totalling over £22M.

The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme is now open for applications - Claim for 80% of your employee’s wages plus any employer National Insurance and pension contributions, if you have put them on furlough because of coronavirus (COVID-19).
