Current non-domestic rates relief scheme

Dear member,

I am writing to inform you that after continued lobbying of Scottish government by the BHA, they have confirmed that the current non-domestic rates relief scheme for hydropower will remain in place throughout the 2019-20 financial year.

Local Authorities administer reliefs so members should liaise with their local council. The legislation requires an application to be made for relief.  Councils will determine whether a new application is required each year but, given State Aid de minimis rules, it is expected that an annual application will be required – as this requires any applicant to confirm they are not breaching state aid rules.
