Consultation description 

From 1 April 2018 we are introducing a new SBRR scheme in Wales. This permanent scheme aims to more effectively target support for small businesses. We are consulting on proposals that include:

  • limiting relief for businesses qualifying for SBRR across multiple properties
  • reviewing current and future exceptions from SBRR
  • increasing support for eligible small businesses 
  • providing additional relief for certain sectors which support wider government objectives, for example the childcare sector
  • longer term considerations for the scheme.
