Explanatory Memorandum to Rates (Amendment) (Northern Ireland) Order 2004

Article 8: Hardship relief

Article 8 inserts a new Article 33B in the principal Order which enables the Department to make Regulations that will give the Department a discretion to reduce or remit the amount of rates payable where there are exceptional circumstances and it appears to the Department that hardship would otherwise be suffered by a ratepayer. This hardship relief will apply to specified (i.e. non-domestic) hereditaments that do not fall within a class to be prescribed in the Regulations.
