New business grants announced 21 December 2021
On the 27 October 2021, the Chancellor announced a series of measures to support businesses from April 2022.
- The business rates multipliers will be frozen for 2022/23. This means the multipliers will remain as 49.9p for small business (occupied premises with an RV under 51,000, not entitled to mandatory relief) and 51.2p for standard business premises.
- Revaluations will take place more frequently. Rather than every 5 years, they will be every 3 years from April 2023.
- Businesses in the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure sectors will be eligible for 50% Retail Discount, up to a cap of £110,000 for 2022/23
- 'Green Energy Relief' for businesses investing in Green energy.
- 'Business Improvement Relief' allowing businesses making improvements to their property to not see their business rates rise for 12 months.
