The government has announced that it is their intention to bring in a new Pub Relief for 2020/21. The pub relief will provide a £1,000 discount to eligible pubs with a rateable value of less than £100,000. This is in addition to Retail Discount and will be applied after the Retail Discount has been applied. This will be confirmed at the Spring Budget on 11/03/20.
The award of this relief must comply with EU law on State Aid (state funded support to business). An application form requires you to confirm that you have not received any other State Aid that exceeds in total €200,000, including any other relief you anticipate being granted for premises other than the one to which the declaration relates, under the De Minimis Regulations EC 1407/2013.
