I do apologise as I don't know where to put this question.
My wife is self employed and her business is closed to to Covid 19. She has lost all future bookings and has no earnings.
I am retired with a State Pension.
We have applied for Universal Credits which has been granted - payment middle of April , so that's great.
We applied for the Small Business Rates Grant - £10,000 to help with business expenses - she intends to open trading again ASAP, and there are obviously supplier contracts and services that need to be paid for,
plus we modernised premises this year ( as we had lots of bookings) and our personal Credit Card debt is approx £9500.
To my surprise they have granted this and are paying money into her business account.
I know we would have to notify Universal Credit about the Grant, but would she still be entitled to U.C payments?
The business is hers , so I presume I am still eligible for U.C
