ECONOMY Minister Diane Dodds today confirmed that the terms of the Covid Restrictions Business Support Scheme (CRBSS) have been extended.

The closing date for applications to Part A and Part B of the CRBSS has been extended to Wednesday December 16.

Payments to eligible businesses will be extended to cover the latest restrictions agreed by the Executive.

The Minister said: “I am committed to doing all I can to support local businesses during what continues to be an incredibly challenging time.

"In light of the latest measures agreed by the Executive, I have decided to extend the terms of the CRBSS so that affected eligible businesses, for both Part A and Part B of the scheme, will receive payments to cover the full period they are required to close, or severely limit, their business.

“Therefore, eligible businesses under both Part A and Part B will be paid for the period until 23:59 on Thursday December 10.”
