This petition was submitted by Endaf Cooke & Gavin Owen having collected 1,132 signatures - 822 on paper and 310 on-line.
Text of Petition
We call on the Welsh Government to revise the small business rates relief system so that businesses with a rateable value of £10,000 or under should receive a 100% discount. Furthermore, any small businesses with a rateable value of between £10,000.01 and £20,000 receive a discount/relief on a tapered scale system of between 0 - 100%.
Currently the small business rates relief in Wales, only offer 100% discount to any business with a rateable value of under £6000. Where as in England, small businesses with a rateable value of under £12,000 receive a 100% discount.
