Today the Welsh Government are announcing a package of support worth more than £200 Million to support smaller businesses in Wales during the Coronavirus outbreak.

Retail, leisure and hospitality businesses with a rateable value of £51,000 or less are able to receive a 100% business rate relief.

Pubs with a rateable value of between £51,000 and £100,000 will receive a £5,000 reduction on their bill.

Finance Minister Rebecca Evans announced this decision, stating:

“I’m pleased we can offer this package of support to businesses as part of our response to the coronavirus outbreak.  We are allocating every penny of the funding we will be receiving as a consequence of the schemes the UK Government announced in England last week to support businesses in Wales.

But I know that helping businesses with their rates bills will not be enough to protect them from the severe drop in custom many are experiencing as coronavirus cases increase.

We will be calling on the UK Government to act quickly and decisively to provide a very significant support package for vulnerable businesses and their employees.”
