Industrial Exemption

Properties that have been constructed or adapted for use for manufacturing, repairing or adapting goods or materials, storage, working or processing of materials and generation of electricity were generally exempt from empty rates until 31 March 2008.

From 1 April 2008 the Government introduced legislation that made these types of properties liable for a full rates charge after receiving an exemption for the first 6 months they were empty.
