Additional information

We are consulting on:

  • ways to improve the accuracy and timeliness of information provided about ratepayers’ circumstances
  • whether the arrangements for empty property rates and relief should change to reduce avoidance
  • reducing abuse of mandatory charitable relief by bogus charities
  • whether a general anti-avoidance rule could be developed for non-domestic rates in Wales
  • non-legislative measures to improve compliance such as joint working between agencies and resources to aid investigation.
