Retail NI Comments on Extension to Business Rates Holiday

Commenting on today’s announcement from the Finance Minister on further rate relief for businesses, Retail NI Chief Executive, Glyn Roberts said:

“This is a welcome announcement and we are pleased that Minister Murphy has listened to our representations that a targeted approach to rate relief is needed to support small independent retailers during this crisis”

“While not all of our members will benefit from the twelve months rates holiday, it will be welcome news for many small to medium sized Retail NI members who have faced immense difficulties over the past few months”

“Getting the rates holiday over the line is absolutely crucial in helping independent retail businesses begin to plan for recovery and for the wider reopening of the economy”
