Rates relief reminder for retail, leisure and hospitality businesses
A reminder is going out to businesses in the retail, leisure and hospitality sectors in Pembrokeshire to apply for rate relief.
Last year the Welsh Government announced the retail, leisure and hospitality rates relief scheme in Wales for 2022-23.
Properties that can benefit include shops, pubs and restaurants, gyms, performance venues and hotels.
Relief will be granted to eligible businesses as a reduction to the rates bill based on occupation between 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023.
The scheme aims to provide support for eligible occupied properties by offering a discount of 50% on non-domestic rates bills.
The scheme will apply to all eligible businesses, however the relief will be subject to a cap in the amount each business can claim across Wales.
The total amount of relief available is £110,000 across all properties occupied by the same business.
The closing date to apply is 31st March.

The Welsh Government has announced further rate relief for 2023-24 and details will be published in due course.
