Claims scheme opens for restaurants in 'Eat Out to Help Out' scheme

Fri, 07/08/2020 - 10:42 -- Editor

The claims service for restaurants taking part in the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme is open.

Outlets can now claim reimbursements from the UK Government for discounts given to their diners this week (Monday to Wednesday), and payment will be made within five working days.

Businesses must wait seven days from the date of registration to make their first claim, and can only claim for scheme discounts offered on or after the date registered.

Claims can be made weekly and when signed into the service, businesses must select the periods that they are claiming for.

Across the UK more than 73,000 outlets have signed up for Eat Out to Help Out, and businesses can still register to use the scheme online at GOV.UK.
