AN estimated 100 small and medium-sized businesses in South Gloucestershire could be eligible for rate relief for the coming financial year.

Those which might benefit from Government-allocated funding are being contacted by South Gloucestershire Council, which will administer the scheme over the next four years, to apply for the support.

Small and medium companies make up the majority of businesses in the area and the aim of the discretionary relief scheme is to help them adjust to and absorb increases to the rates.

South Gloucestershire will receive £752,000 of funding over the four-year period and it hopes that £438,000 will be distributed in the first year.
