Flintshire County Council is working in partnership with Welsh Government to provide retail, leisure and hospitality businesses with 50% business rates relief for 2022-23, capped at £110,000 per business across Wales. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The scheme is in addition to the existing Small Business Rates Relief scheme. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

There are potentially 994 businesses in Flintshire who are expected to qualify as part of the £5m funding package from Welsh Government. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

All retail, leisure and hospitality businesses will need to complete an on-line application form to benefit from the reduction, including those  businesses who have qualified previously. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The online application form and details of the scheme are now available at flintshire.gov.uk/businessrates ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Councillor Ian Roberts, the Leader of the Council, said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“I am extremely pleased that Welsh Government are continuing to support our local retail, leisure and hospitality businesses.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“This package of support will assist businesses in this sector for another 12 months, especially as many businesses continue to recover from the pandemic.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
