Empty Property Rate Relief for New Builds

The Government has introduced a new measure to extend the empty property rate relief for empty new build properties

Empty new builds that are complete on or after 1 October 2013, will now be exempt from payment of empty property rates for up to 18 months, up to state aid limits, between 1 October 2013 and 30 September 2016. The 18 month period includes the initial three or six month exemption. The relief will continue beyond 30 September 2016 for those properties that become eligible before that date.
