Since April 2019, registered childcare providers in Wales can receive 100% rate relief.

The review has considered:

  • local authority non domestic rate billing data
  • evidence from the ‘health check survey’
  • NDNA workforce survey findings and member views
  • Scottish Government review
  • the review of the business rates system for England, and
  • wider secondary evidence around business rate relief

This evidence has shown registered childcare settings:

  • face significant financial operational difficulties
  • are relying on business rate relief to enable them to sustain their operation, meet regulation requirements, and keep parent childcare fees affordable.

This information provides a compelling case for continued business rate relief for registered day care nurseries, not least because of additional pressures this review has cited which have been created by the pandemic.
