If after reading the Policy document you feel that your business meets the qualifying criteria for the scheme and you have not yet had a Business Rates bill showing that the relief has been awarded, please contact the Business Rates team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that any award of discretionary relief is granted under State Aid De Minimis Regulations. If you have previously been awarded discretionary relief under the De Minimis Regulations, you must declare this to us.
State Aid law is the means by which the European Union regulates state funded support to businesses. The De Minimis regulations allow an undertaking to receive up to €200,000 of ‘De Minimis’ aid over a rolling three year period (consisting of the current financial year and the two previous financial years). Linked enterprises are considered as one single undertaking for the application of the De Minimis rule.
It is therefore necessary for the local authority to establish that the awarding of relief will not result in the undertaking having received more than €200,000 of De Minimis aid.
