Small Business Vacant Premises Incentive Scheme

Terms Conditions and Guidelines

 

Kilkenny County Council provides a ‘Small Business Vacant Premises Incentive Scheme’ to encourage the use of vacant commercial premises. The purpose of the scheme is to give an incentive for the occupation of previously vacant commercial property for a new business start-up or an existing small business expanding, by lowering entry costs through a grant related to the level of rates payable on the property.

This scheme sets out the mechanism, eligibility and conditions for businesses to receive financial assistance from the Council for the purpose of locating in premises that have been vacant for a period exceeding six months. The Scheme is applicable to subject premises which have a rates valuation of no more than €5,000. It will operate by lowering the entry costs through a grant related to the level of rates payable on the property.
