Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations apply to Wales.

Under Part II of Schedule 8 to the Local Government Finance Act 1988 billing authorities are required to pay amounts (called non-domestic rating contributions) to the Secretary of State. Provisional amounts are paid during the year, final calculations and any adjustments of payments being made after the year ends. They are calculated in accordance with the Non-Domestic Rating Contributions (Wales) Regulations 1992 (“the 1992 Regulations”).

These Regulations amend the rules for calculating contributions in the 1992 Regulations for financial years beginning with 1998/99. Regulation 3 disallows deductions from contributions in respect of hereditaments occupied by county schools, and makes transitional provision. Regulation 4 alters certain figures used in the calculation of provisional amounts.


1988 c. 41; sections 140 and 143 were amended by the Local Government and Housing Act 1989 (c. 42, “the 1989 Act”), Schedule 5, paragraphs 69 and 72, and by the Local Government Finance Act 1992 (c. 14, “the 1992 Act”), Schedule 13, paragraphs 78 and 80. Paragraphs 4 and 6 of Schedule 8 were amended by the 1989 Act, Schedule 5, paragraph 42, and by the 1992 Act, Schedule 10, paragraph 6 and Schedule 13, paragraph 86.
