The reduction in turnover or customer orders (30%) between 1 January and 30 June 2021, is shown compared to the:

• same period in 2019, where the business operated for the whole of the comparable period in 2019

• period from the date of commencement to 30 June 2019, where the business commenced trading between 1 January and 1 May 2019

• projected turnover or customer orders from 1 January 2021, or date of commencement, to 30 June 2021, where business commenced after 1 May 2019. (This is compared to what the projections may have been if COVID-19 had not occurred.)

You must retain evidence of appropriate documentation, including copies of projections to demonstrate continued eligibility over the specified period.

Monthly review to check eligibility

You are required to undertake a review on the last day of every month to ensure you continue to meet the eligibility criteria. It is important to document projections and reviews
