So, what is a substantial meal?
Essentially, a substantial meal is one that is served on a plate with 2-3 core elements & roughly 500-600 calories. A standard sandwich/toastie served with crisps & salad would suffice as a minimum offer for example.

Furlough scheme (AKA Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, or CJRS)
The CJRS is being extended until December. The level of the grant will mirror levels available under the CJRS in August, so the government will pay 80% of wages up to a cap of £2,500 and employers will pay employer National Insurance Contributions (NICs) and pension contributions only for the hours the employee does not work.
The latest government info on business grants as of December 2020:
· The government are providing additional funding to allow Local Authorities (LAs) to support businesses in high-alert level areas which are not legally closed, but which are severely impacted by the restrictions on socialising. The funding LAs will receive will be based on the number of hospitality, hotel, B&B, and leisure businesses in their area.
· LAs will receive a funding amount that will be the equivalent of:
- For properties with a rateable value of £15,000 or under, grants of £934 per month.
- For properties with a rateable value over £15,000 and below £51,000, grants of £1,400 per month.
·- For properties with a rateable value of exactly £51,000 and over, grants of £2,100 per month.
· This is equivalent to 70% of the grant amounts given to legally closed businesses (worth up to £3,000/month).
· Local Authorities will also receive a 5% top up amount to these implied grant amounts to cover other businesses that might be affected by the local restrictions, but which do not neatly fit into these categories.
· It will be up to Local Authorities to determine which businesses are eligible for grant funding in their local areas, and what precise funding to allocate to each business – the above levels are an approximate guide.
· Businesses in Very High alert level areas will qualify for greater support whether closed (up to £3,000/month) or open. In the latter case support is being provided through business support packages provided to Local Authorities as they move into the alert level. The government is working with local leaders to ensure the Very High alert level packages are fair and transparent.
