High Street Rate Relief for Denbighshire Businesses

Earlier this year we told you about the Welsh Governments High Street Rate Relief Scheme. This targeted relief scheme is new for 2017/18 and has been designed to help high street retailers, including those which have seen an increase in their Business Rates bill as a result of the 2017 revaluation undertaken by the Valuation Office Agency.

Denbighshire County Council have now successfully applied the Welsh Governments High Street Rate Relief scheme to all eligible properties in the County. In total, 638 eligible Businesses in Denbighshire have saved £528,812 from their bills. Individual businesses will have seen relief of up to £500 (Tier 1) or up to £1,500 (Tier 2).

 For more details on the scheme and eligibility criteria read the High Street Rate Relief Guidance.

If your business is eligible you will have received a revised bill with the discount having been automatically applied to your account.

If you have received an amended bill and do not wish to have the HSRR applied to your premises, you need to fill in and return the opt-out form enclosed with your bill.

Alternatively, if you believe you should have qualified but have not received the relief and want us to review your case please contact the Business Rates Section at: businessrates@denbighshire.gov.uk / Telephone: 01824 706326

Welsh Government are currently devising the new rate relief scheme(s) for 2018/19 onwards and we await further guidance with more detail expected in Autumn this year.
