Business Incentive Scheme
The Open for Business Incentive Scheme is a business incentive scheme that will provide a grant on commercial rates for up to three years for businesses re-occupying properties that have been vacant for long periods of time. Offaly County Council wants to encourage thriving and diverse business centres and wants to see the number of vacant retail/commercial properties decrease. This grant is intended to incentivise and encourage reoccupation of vacant retail/commercial properties. The current scheme expired on 31/12/2017 and a new business incentive scheme will be announced during 2018.
