Stormont working to recoup Covid relief funds sent to ineligible firms

A Stormont department is working to recover emergency coronavirus funding sent to ineligible businesses.

Under the Small Business Support Grant Scheme launched in March, a £10,000 payment was automatically sent to any firm in receipt of small business rates relief.

Some 52 wind turbines owners were among those who received the payment, but the department has since ruled that sector ineligible for the scheme.
