  1. BUDGET DAY - expected announcements include Furlough extension and 6. Support to help businesses reopen The chancellor is to unveil details of a £5bn grant scheme to help struggling High Street shops and hospitality firms in England reopen after lockdown. The chancellor said the grants would be worth as much as £18,000 per firm, but some business groups say the money is not enough. Nearly 700,000 shops, restaurants, hotels, hair salons, gyms and other businesses in England, will be eligible for the so-called "restart grants", to be distri
  2. Hi, see you are possibly servicing patchers which is good, not sure if you know of a good supplier of parts for Singer 29k but can recommend College Sewing if it helps you - https://www.college-sewing.co.uk/parts-by-machine/singer-sewing-machine-parts/singer-29k-71-parts

      Thanks for the info Peter, yes College Sewing are great, I use them for the supply of parts. Very efficient.

  3. 29K71 is a good model with all parts available including manuals but that looks to be taken care of by @CotswoldEngraver
  4. most of the time it's a one off but not always never can work it out. On cheaper items it makes a big difference.
  5. It will be no different to buying from the US, yes you will get a VAT invoice to pay before delivery plus the carriers handling charge for arranging that payment. If you're VAT registered it gets claimed back but not the charge.
  6. BUT if you didn't get the November one you can apply for this one which is slightly different and on a case by case for some businesses
  7. From our Council: We are looking to re-open the application process for the Additional Restriction Grant (a discretionary grant scheme) in the next week or so
  8. ******MEGA NEWSFLASH****** Just in the news, go back to your insurance policies/companies/brokers and see if you can now claim for business interruption following the Supreme Court ruling against insurers https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-55661702
  9. That's the concern, I believe the grants will be local council distribution so we will see different interpretations around the UK BUT there is also the fund for those who fall outside the automatic grant bracket but can prove they cannot trade for other reasons which may be the way to chase your council. I believe most councils are being helpful hopefully it won't be long before we get reports of grants being given to our trade. Once we get news (hopefully here) of the new grants being given it will help each other to reason with their council if they get refused.
  10. I am concerned about that as well for everyone but until the payments are made (or not) we have to wait to see what happens, like I said Siserve will be looking to the local council as we are extremely affected but we are not retail yet all our customers are. Hopefully we will start hearing soon who has received it
  11. Further to the grants announcement I'm afraid the waters are murky over how much you may get and if you even qualify for a grant - but there is another fund that could apply only time will tell, it is a route I will have to take because we are not retail but all our customers are so hoping a grant will be made through the second route for us Further information the one-off top-ups will be granted to closed businesses as follows: £4,000 for businesses with a rateable value of £15,000 or under £6,000 for businesses with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000 £
  12. One random thing I've just remembered I think it was an IS400 but the screw shaft that goes through from front to back is fixed with tiny grub screws at the end (my memory isn't great) could be worth a look
  13. Sorry no idea could try messaging or wait till they appear
