Commercial Rates and Restart Fund

The Government has decided that a waiver of commercial rates will apply to all businesses that have been forced to close due to public health requirements from 27 March 2020, for a three-month period from 26 March 2020. The position will remain under review as part of a wider review of options to support enterprises and employment, and associated local authority funding implications, once the unwinding of public health restrictions has advanced. The cost, expected to be €260m, will be met by the Exchequer.
