Almost 1,000 businesses have received payouts from their local councils as part of the Government's package to help them recover from the winter flooding.
In a written parliamentary answer, local government minister Brandon Lewis confirmed 979 companies benefited from the Business Rates Relief Fund as of the beginning of June.
There are no set or advance allocations to councils, which instead have to retrospectively claim back the cost of the relief.
Mr Lewis said 66 local authorities had submitted claims for reimbursement ahead of the deadline last month and added the Government expected to pay back £4 million shortly.
