Storm Dennis Flooding Disruption

21 February 2020

We are acutely aware of the enormous disruption resulting from the flooding as a result from Storm Dennis over the weekend of 14th to 18th February.

One factor to consider is your liability to business rates. We are lobbying the Welsh Government and Local Authorities for immediate relief from business rates for affected businesses.   The Welsh Government held a meeting with Local Authorities on 19th February.

 

We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide further update as soon as the Welsh Government announces any schemes of relief to alleviate the adverse financial impact of the floods to businesses.

 

In the meantime if you would like to discuss any aspect of your liability to business rates please contact us.

Cooke & Arkwright have been providing Newport City Council with rating advice for over 20 years. Andrew, Jane and Huw provide a personal and professional service and have an excellent knowledge of the Council’s assets which has enabled the Council to achieve substantial rate savings. A useful service offered is the status report which provides us with a snapshot of what appeals have been made and appeals outstanding throughout the life of the List. I would recommend Cooke & Arkwright Rating Services to any company wishing to procure up-to-date and professional rating advice.
