The CARF scheme is subject to the subsidies chapter within the UK- EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA). However, for CARF there is an exemption for subsidies under the value of approximately £ 2,24 3,000 per economic actor (broadly speaking, for example, a holding company and its subsidiaries). This allowance comprises 325,000 Special Drawing Rights (at current exchange rates about £34 3,000) for Small Amounts of Financial Assistance and a further £1,900,000 for COVID-19 related subsidy.


Therefore, to be awarded CARF you must not have claimed over the period 2019/20 to 2021/22 more than £2,24 3,000 from schemes which fell within the Small Amounts of Financial Assistance or COVID-19 related allowances. COVID-19 business grants you have received from local government and the 2019/20 Retail Relief should count towards this limit, but you should not count any Extended Retail Discount you have received since 1 April 2020. Further details of subsidy control can be found at:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-additional-relief-fund-carf-local-authority-guidance


In your application for CARF you must indicate:


  • if you have not to date received any subsidy which fell within the Small Amounts of Financial Assistance or COVID-19 related allowances, confirm this in your application, or
  • if you have received other such subsidies, then you should provide the name and total value of those subsidies.
You must not apply for CARF using this form if you have already exceeded the £2,2 43,000 allowance. However, we will still consider applications for support under the CARF scheme if you have reached this limit provided you can evidence that you:

 

  • Intend to use the support to fund uncovered fixe d costs (costs not covered by profits for insurance etc) during the period of COVID-19. Economic actors may claim for up to 70% of their uncovered costs (although this 70% limit does not apply to small businesses with less than 50 employees and less than £9 million turnover where the limit is instead 90%), and
  • have shown a decline in turnover of at least 30% within the April 2020 to March 2021 period, compared to the same 2019 to 2020 period. 
You may claim up to a further £10 million of additional allowance (on top of the £2,243,000) if you meet the above tests and you have not claimed any other support from the additional allowance up to an aggregate £10 million limit (such as from the COVID -19 business grants).


The Government and Tandridge District Council will not tolerate any business falsifying their records or providing false evidence to gain this discount, including claiming support above these thresholds. A ratepayer who falsely applies for any relief, or provides false information or makes false representation in order to gain relief may be guilty of fraud under the Fraud Act 2006
