EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
    Under Part II of Schedule 8 to the Local Government Finance Act 1988 "the 1988 Act"), charging authorities are required to pay amounts (called non-domestic rating contributions) to the Secretary of State. Provisional amounts are paid during the year, final calculations and payments being made after the year ends. Regulation 2 of these Regulations amends the rules for the calculation of payments contained in the Non-Domestic Rating Contributions (Wales) Regulations 1989 ( "the 1989 Regulations").
    Regulation 6A inserted in the 1989 Regulations makes provision in respect of the recalculation of the provisional amount of an authority's non-domestic rating contribution for the financial year beginning on 1st April 1992 in order to take account of the amendments made by the Non-Domestic Rating Act 1992 ( "the 1992 Act") to Schedule 7A (non-domestic rating: 1990 to 1995) to the 1988 Act and to related secondary legislation.
    Regulations 7A and 8A inserted in the 1989 Regulations provide for the making of repayments to authorities by the Secretary of State, or of reduced payments to the Secretary of State by authorities, in consequence of a recalculation under regulation 6A(5).
    It is possible for regulation 2(h) and (i) of these Regulations to have effect in respect of the financial year beginning on 1st April 1992, notwithstanding paragraph 4(6) of Schedule 8 to the 1988 Act, by virtue of section 7 of the 1992 Act.
