31 March is last chance to claim for Bank Buildings losses

Business affected by the Bank Buildings wishing to claim from the Land and Property Services (LPS) Rates Hardship Relief Scheme by 31 March.

The last date to claim from the LPS Rates Hardship relief Scheme is 31 March.

Belfast Chamber have lobbied LPS to ensure the process is helpful to businesses in Belfast City centre and specifically to simplify the application process. We met Permanent Secretary Sue Gray and senior LPS management, who have been helpful in providing a streamlined process to make the application as easy as possible for business. They have produced a Guidance Note specifically for the Bank Buildings fire, and this removes the necessity to complete some of the more complicated fields.

We are advised that the last date for submitting an application for the 2018/19 year is 31 March 2019 so we encourage all affected businesses to apply now.

Contact Belfast Chamber if you require any assistance with the process.
