Rebecca Evans MS, Minister for Finance and Local Government
Today, I am launching a consultation on proposed changes to the central rating list for Wales, to coincide with the next non-domestic rates revaluation on 1 April 2023.
Non-domestic rates are an integral part of the local government funding system in Wales, providing over £1 billion each year towards the costs of vital local services. All the revenue raised is distributed in full to support local government and police services – services we all benefit from.
Non-domestic properties are recorded on one of two lists; the local list and the central list, kept by local authorities and the Welsh Ministers respectively. The consultation asks for views on possible changes to telecommunications networks, the mobile telecommunications sector and railways.
The consultation will run for 12 weeks and responses are requested by 15 April 2022.
