The government announced that they would 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.
The Chancellor as part of the Budget on 11th March 2020, announced additional NDR reliefs for Retail and Pubs; Pub Relief will be increased to £5,000 (subject to state aid rules as set out below) We are currently amending our NDR bills to take account of these changes and there will be no need to apply to qualify for these.
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.
