As the COVID19 crisis lockdown moves into its second month, Perth & Kinross Council’s Economic Development service is focussed on ensuring businesses in the area are furnished with all relevant information, can access all channels of support open to them, and feel supported during this difficult time.

Crucially, the aim is to sustain businesses and to help them pay and treat staff fairly in order that we emerge from this as unscathed and as robustly as possible.

As you begin to scrutinise the financial resilience and resource contingency of your business we would like to assure you of our continued support.  If you find your business is in critical financial straits, please contact businessdevelopment@pkc.gov.uk.

There are various financial measures and other means of support now up and running and we have outlined the basic information here, stating eligibility and offering links to apply where relevant. See boxed link below.
