Denbighshire County Council has issued a warning to businesses in the county to beware of receiving unsolicited telephone calls claiming that the Enhanced Small Business Rates Relief provisions will be ending on 31 March 2013.
The caller claims to be able to save the business money by gaining a reduction in the rates payable after this time for a fixed fee payment.
The council says this is incorrect.
A spokesman said: "The Welsh Government has recently announced that the Enhanced Small Business Rate Relief provisions have been extended for a further 12 months in their current format. T
"This means that businesses will continue to enjoy the same level of relief in the 2013/14 billing year as they have had in the current year at no additional cost."
