Businesses can apply for Welsh Government business support

26-03-2020

The Welsh Government has announced a support package for certain businesses listed on the business rates register.

The new package includes a year-long business rates holiday for retail, leisure and hospitality businesses in Wales, with a rateable value under £500,000. We 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. A grant of £25,000 will also be offered for businesses in these sectors with a rateable value of between £12,001 and £51,000.
 
The Welsh Government package also provides a £10,000 grant to all businesses eligible for Small Business Rates Relief with a rateable value of £12,000 or less.
 
To enable quick and efficient grant applications, we would ask that you complete this online form
 
 
Businesses can also search the rateable value of their properties online
 
As soon as we have assessed your application, subject to eligibility criteria being met, we will be making an immediate award to you via the BACS payment process.
 
Once you have made your application, we would appreciate your patience in not following-up by phone.
 
We very much appreciate the major challenges being faced by businesses, and our staff will make every effort to get your payments to you as soon as possible.
 
We’re aiming to get all payments to you as soon as possible from the date of receiving your application.
