Business rates relief and reductions

From 1 st October 2010 the Welsh Government temporarily increased the level of relief available to small businesses in Wales. 
Registered Charities and registered Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASC’s) can apply for charitable relief.
Not for profit organisations can apply for discretionary rates relief and receive up to 100% relief on their rates bill. 
Most business properties will be liable to pay business rates even when they are empty.
The Council has discretionary powers to award hardship relief to business ratepayers.
This relief is aimed at businesses and other ratepayers in Wales in the retail, leisure and hospitality sectors, for example shops, pubs and restaurants, gyms, performance venues and hotels.
