Vacancy Write Off Scheme for vacant rateable properties in Co. Leitrim.
The 2019 Budget provided for an amendment to the Vacancy Write Off Scheme, whereby Leitrim County Council will grant a maximum write off equivalent to 75% of commercial rates invoiced during 2019. In this regard, with effect from 1st January, 2019 vacant properties will no longer be eligible for a 100% Vacancy Write Off. The maximum Vacancy Write Off that can be considered (subject to the standard conditions of the scheme being in place) is 75% write off of the total Rate Demand for the property. The same provisions are in place for 2020 and 2021, in that, the maximum write off of rates for a vacant property that can be approved is 75% of the total rate demand subject to all other conditions of the scheme being satisfed.
