Government help available for flood damage recovery
Rebuilding your business after flooding?
As part of the government’s ongoing work and support for dealing with floods and associated damage, the Prime Minister has set out further support for businesses to help them with flood damage recovery. If you need to replace damaged critical items in laundries or kitchens - such as commercial washing machines, drying equipment, dishwashers, cooking or refrigeration units - we recommend that you call the helpline below to find out if you are entitled to financial assistance in doing so.
A new Business Support Scheme
The scheme is worth up to £10million to provide hardship funding for SME businesses in areas affected by the floods and resulting water damage. Both businesses that have been flooded, and businesses that are in affected areas and have suffered significant loss of trade, or insurance difficulties, will be able to apply for support. Eligible businesses will be able to claim 'restoration' funding for things like immediate cleaning costs, materials, and exceptional costs to help them continue trading.
A Government helpline has been set up, and will provide comprehensive advice and support to businesses affected by floods - and a free 1 hour call with a dedicated Business Support Adviser. The helpline number is 0300 456 3565.
JLA acts to help affected businesses
Whether you receive help from the Government or are looking to get the most out of any insurance pay-outs you receive in the aftermath of flooding, JLA will be happy to provide a quick-quote response for both machines and full refurbishment projects. Some ways in which we can help flood victims are:
- Robust replacement equipment for businesses affected by flood water
- Total Care rental package - if you do not receive Government help, or your insurance pay-outs are less than expected, our all-inclusive rental package allows you to install brand new machines with inclusive 7-day breakdown cover for a monthly rental payment - no capital investment is required
- Planning, design, advice and fit-out services for laundries, kitchens and sluice rooms, with full building and refurbishment project management available
