The Welsh Government wants your views on the policy proposals for delivering a permanent small business rates relief (SBRR) scheme for Wales.

From 1 April 2018 the Welsh Government are introducing a new SBRR scheme in Wales. This permanent scheme aims to more effectively target support for small businesses.

The consultation proposals include:

  • Limiting relief for businesses qualifying for SBRR across multiple properties
  • Reviewing current and future exceptions from SBRR
  • Increasing support for eligible small businesses
  • Providing additional relief for certain sectors which support wider government objectives, for example the childcare sector
  • Longer term considerations for the scheme

Please submit your comments by 13 October 2017.
