Local restaurants are being urged to sign up for the UK Government’s ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ discount scheme which will run through August.

The new scheme was announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak as part of a series of measures to bolster the economy during Covid-19.

‘Eat Out to Help Out’ will offer a 50% discount for up to a maximum of £10 per person from Monday to Wednesday throughout the month of August, with discounts being claimed back from the government.

Registration is open and the discounts can be offered from August 3 onwards.

Cllr James Evans, Cabinet Member for Economy and Regulatory Services, said: “We welcome this news – the discount scheme will help more of our local businesses as they recover from the economic effects of the virus.

“I encourage restaurant premises across Powys to open their doors on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout August so they can benefit from this scheme.

“We appreciate not all restaurants tend to open at the beginning of the week as it’s usually quieter, but this an unmissable opportunity to boost business.

“There is no limit to the number of times you can use the offer during the period of the scheme, so please take advantage of it and dine out during the week.”

Businesses will be able to submit claims for reimbursements on a weekly basis from August 7 and HMRC will pay eligible claims within five working days. 

Businesses can sign up here.
