Grants between £10,000 and £25,000
If you are eligible for a grant from the council because you pay little or no business rates for your business premises or are in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors then your local council should have written to you explaining how to claim.
The website for Wigan Council and Warrington Council is now open to make an online claim for the grants for businesses that pay little or no rates (£10,000) and businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors (up to £25,000).

Official guidance from the government is here
I don’t have the links for any of the other councils as they are council specific.
As this is an unprecedented situation, I emphasize these views are only guidance and should not be taken as law. If you are in any doubt you should seek specialised advice, especially is there are unusual circumstances that don’t fit the norm.
