Detail of outcome
This is the summary of responses and government’s response to the consultation.
The Telecommunication Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill provides the powers necessary to implement 100% business rates relief for new full fibre infrastructure.
Through these powers we will make regulations which deliver the relief to operators of telecom networks who install new fibre on their networks. This new fibre will be eligible for 100% relief from business rates for the 5 years from 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2022.
The government is seeking views on how the draft regulations implement this relief.
