Business rate relief and grants for businesses

Published: 09/04/2020

Welsh Government and Flintshire County Council are working together to support businesses during this emergency situation.

All retail, leisure and hospitality businesses with a rateable value of up to £500,000 will now receive 100% rate relief in 2020/21. If your business falls into this category and you haven’t yet received a ‘nil’ bill from us, you can make an on-line application for the enhanced 100% rate relief scheme at flintshire.gov.uk/businessrates.

As well as the enhanced rate relief scheme for retail, leisure and hospitality businesses, there are also two new non-repayable grants schemes available for all small businesses:

Grant 1 – Retail, leisure and hospitality businesses with a rateable value between £12,001 and £51,000 will receive a grant of £25,000.

Grant 2 – All businesses which are currently eligible for Small Business Rates Relief with a rateable value up to £12,000 will receive a grant of £10,000.

The grants are administered by the Council on behalf of Welsh Government and if your business is eligible for a grant please complete the online grant application form as soon as possible at flintshire.gov.uk/businessrates. If you have already submitted an on-line application, rest assured it will be in the system for verification and payment. There is no requirement to re-submit another form.
