Intro Text 

The Government announced on the 23rd July that the waiver of commercial rates will be extended for a further three month period to the 27th September. 

In order to enhance the supports available for enterprise, and in recognition of the fact that not only have many ratepayers been forced to close business due to the public health requirements, but many others who remained open have suffered significant reductions in turnover, the waiver will be extended to a duration of six months to end September and the categories of enterprise who will be eligible to avail of it is being expanded.

A 100% waiver will be applied to all businesses, for a six-month period to end September, with a small number of categories excepted. The rationale for the exclusion of these ratepayers is that their operations were not as severely impacted by the pandemic, coupled with the need to direct resources appropriately.
