The Aylesbury Vale Business Grant is one of the initiatives undertaken by Aylesbury Vale District Council to promote sustainable business growth. It aims to promote local entrepreneurship and business innovation, encouraging business and employment growth.
What stage is your business at?
- An early stage business is a company which has usually been trading for at least three months and up to a year.
- An established company is a company which has been trading for more than a year.
- Applications from people who have not started trading yet will not be considered for the business grant, because the grant exists to support business growth and employment in the Vale.
Level of grant available:
- up to £3,000 for early stage businesses
- up to £5,000 for established businesses
To qualify for the grant, applicants must:
- be businesses with less than 30 employees

- early stage business applicants are required to provide evidence of 50% match funding (this means we will pay up to two thirds of the cost)
