The Government is providing funding for local authorities to provide a £1,000 discount to pubs with a rateable value of below £100,000. This was to run for 2017/18 only; at the Autumn Budget 2017, the Government extended the scheme for an additional year. Pubs with a rateable value below £100,000 will also receive a £1,000 discount for 2018/19.
The Council have identified those ratepayers who it believes are eligible for the scheme and have automatically applied relief subject to confirmation that relief is within EU State Aid limits. Please contact the Business Rates Team on 01670 624885 if you are not in receipt of the relief but feel you meet the eligibility criteria.
