With claims not being available to be made until mid-December. This is now been increased to 80% for November, but remaining at 40% for December and January, with the claim date being brought forward to the end of this month on 30th November.

This means that the grant available for the 3 months will now be 55% of trading profits up to a maximum of £5,160.
