Business Rates Relief Scheme

Support: All retail, leisure and hospitality businesses will receive 100% non-domestic rates relief in 2020-21 regardless of their rateable value. (i.e. nothing to pay for the year). Please follow this link for further details on the scheme. 

For further details on eligibility, click on the Guidance Non Domestic Rates link

Local Authorities will be looking to automatically award the business rates holiday to all eligible parties as soon as possible, and you will receive a new bill when the award has been made.

As this will be automatically awarded we’d appreciate your patience in not following-up by phone. We very much appreciate the major challenges being faced by businesses, and staff will make every effort to get details to you as soon as possible.

Rate Relief for Premises over £500,000

The Welsh Government has decided to make one adjustment to the Non-Domestic Rates (NDR) Relief for the hospitality, retail and leisure sector announced last week: to not extend the 100% relief to the small proportion of properties with a rateable value of £500,000 and above.

This will affect fewer than 200 properties across Wales but will release approximately £117 million to kick-start the economic crisis fund. We will be writing to all of the businesses affected and making clear that they will be eligible to apply for discretionary funding to offset some of the costs of NDR if they have a strong case for this.
