Pubs and small businesses will receive extra help with their business rates bill, the chancellor has announced.
Every pub with a rateable value of less than £100,000 will receive a discount of £1,000 in 2017, a move that affects 90% of all pubs, Philip Hammond said.
Small businesses set to lose their rate relief in the planned revamp will see increases capped at £50 a month.
A £300m fund for local councils to offer discretionary relief to the worst-hit firms was also announced,
Overall, the extra relief will cost the government £435m, the chancellor said.
Pubs welcomed the move.
"This much-needed government support will save the sector over £24m and will help safeguard investment and jobs," said Kate Nicholls, chief executive of the Association of Licensed Multiple Retailers, a body representing retailers in the eating and drinking sector.
