EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations, which apply in relation to Wales, amend the Non-Domestic Rating Contributions (Wales) Regulations 1992 (“the 1992 Regulations”).

Under Part II of Schedule 8 to the Local Government Finance Act 1988, billing authorities (in Wales, county and county borough councils) are required to pay amounts (called non-domestic rating contributions) to the Welsh Ministers. The 1992 Regulations contain rules for the calculation of those contributions for Welsh billing authorities.

These Regulations amend the 1992 Regulations by substituting a new Schedule 4 (Adult Population Figures).
