To receive the grant businesses need to register online at www.monmouthshire.gov.uk/business-advice/ and click on ‘Please register your details’. The details applicants will need to have at hand are their correct email address, their business bank account details and business account reference number. which can be found on their business rates statement which also details the rateable value.
