Business Resumption Support Scheme (BRSS)

Overview

The details of the Business Resumption Support Scheme (BRSS) are set out in Finance (COVID-19 and Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2021. BRSS will support businesses that were significantly impacted throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, even during periods when restrictions were eased.

The support will be available to eligible businesses who carry on a relevant business activity. Your business must be able to demonstrate a significant reduction in trade during the period 1 September 2020 to 31 August 2021.

Eligible businesses can make a claim to Revenue for a payment known as an Advance Credit for Trading Expenses (ACTE).

Applications under the scheme may be made between 1 September 2021 and 30 November 2021.
