100% Business Rates Reliefs for Garden Centres Confirmed

It was confirmed yesterday by the Minister for Housing, Communities & Local Government that Rates relief at 100% for the retail and leisure sectors will be applied to all Garden Centres.


The relief will apply for a period of 12 months, effective from the 1st April 2020. For the avoidance of any doubt, there is no Rateable Value limit.


The guidance is subject to confirmation from the EU in respect of State aid rules. The EU have been notified, and a decision is awaited.


A copy of the guidance document from MHCLG can be downloaded here.
