    water sub -meters Scotland

    I own 2 storey commercial property in lanarkshire current occupiers bookmakers (ground floor)
    new 1st time tenants (solicitors) will shortly lease all of the first floor of the property. (recently fitted out)
    the water supply to the ground floor property is metered , and the occupiers are billed accordingly.. via the water company
    ( said meter is located outwith the property)

    pipework from the existing supply has been put in place to enable a water supply to the first floor.
    prior to the new tenants moving in and to tie up loose ends can I also to install an internal water sub-meter within the1st floor premises ?

    what is the planning use of your commercial premises. Shop, hospitality or leisure?

    It is taxpayers' money. Surprising that if you qualify they didnt pay you the grant less the rates owed. Unfortunately public bodies dont think in the way business people do........

    Lizbeth, perhaps you could provide a link to the grant legislation or govt eligibility that stipulates that a business must reopen for a minimum of x months or even reopen at all to be entitled to keep the grant money? If not I'd kindly suggest that you're talking utter nonsense.

    Of course...

    To claim the grant you would have to provide information from the business rates demand letter for that premises, i.e name, account number, unique payer ref number, etc. Who was receiving these periodic demands? How do you know this person received the £10k grant?

    If you/your father stopped...

    Yes, how one uses the grant money is entirely discretionary, but its purpose is to 'replace' any income the business in question might have reasonably expected to earn (well, up to £10k of course!), out of which the business owner would then have paid their business expenses. But if the rent money...

    A business only needed to be eligible for small business rates relief on the 11 march 2020 to automatically recieve the grant.The policy intention would have been for that money to be used to help the business through this period, but it would be up to he individual how to allocate this.In some cases...

    We have had quite a few tenants who have taken the grant money and stuck it in their pocket effectively putting up a V sign at us. One of them is the long established betting shop business with hundreds of branches whose parent company is listed in the FTSE250 Without wanting to name names we issued...
