New rates relief available for Wiltshire retailers

By Anita Jaynes on May 12, 2014

Swindon based commercial property consultants Kilpatrick & Co are marketing a number of shops which qualify for the new 50% rates relief that was brought in last month.

Andrew Kilpatrick of Kilpatrick & Co said ” The rates relief available on empty shop properties will make a big difference to retailers looking to take on a new shop from April. We have a number of shop properties qualifying for this rates relief in various towns including in Marlborough, Hungerford, Calne and Swindon. The new rates relief can be worth several thousands of pounds in cost savings to an incoming retailer which will be significant in assisting new shop occupations. However, to get the maximum rates relief a new tenant must be in occupation of an empty shop before 1 October 2014; so retailers need to be looking at suitable shops now and getting terms agreed before occupation can begin.”
