Middlesbrough Council

Middlesbrough Council is inviting applications for targeted business rates relief in support of projects with development potential, encouragement of new entrants to Middlesbrough’s market, step-change developments and the reoccupation of vacant premises (where rates are not currently payable); the scheme aims to incentivise inward investment in key sectors/areas, as a way to generate new business rates and support the delivery of the objects of the Investment Prospectus.

The scheme is time and resource limited and will prioritise new businesses entering Middlesbrough’s market will be prioritised, although support may be available for incumbent businesses with significant growth plans or expansions (for both business turnover and business rates yield).

Any support would be tapered over a three-year period to allow for business growth and stabilisation; reverting to the full amount payable in year four. Any application will be subject to eligibility criteria, availability and will be capped at the de-minimus level of state-aid support.
