How to get the Coronavirus government £10,000 cash grant for small businesses?

In the initial budget, the Chancellor announced £3,000 grants for small businesses. This small business coronavirus cash grant was then increased to £10,000 on 17th March.  
This is part of a £330bn package of support for businesses. 

How do I get the government £10,000 coronavirus cash grant?

Eligibility is still based around rate relief. 

Those who qualify for Small Business Rate Relief (SBBR) or Rural Rate Relief will be able to get the funding. 

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy will be working with local authorities to outline the scheme and encourage local authorities to prepare.

You will not need to apply for the funding – your local authority will contact you. 

The government website states that grant money will not be available until early April. 

Guidance will be issued to local authorities by 1 April and they will write to businesses shortly thereafter with details of how to claim the grant. 

The coronavirus grant only applies to small business in England. 
Business rates in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are set by their devolved administrations
