Reductions to Business Rates bills
In some circumstances you may be eligible for a reduction to your Business Rates bill. There are several different types of reduction, or relief:
Small Business Rate Relief
If a property has a rateable value of less than £25,499, it may be eligible for the Small Business Rate Relief Scheme. More about Small Business Rate Relief.
Charitable Relief is awarded when properties are used for charitable purposes or by non-profit making organisations. There are two types of Charitable Relief; mandatory and discretionary. More about Charitable Relief.
The five year transitional relief scheme that commenced in 2017 has now expired, a very small number of assessments that might have still qualified for transitional relief had the scheme continued will be identified and contacted. These might be small properties with an RV of under £20k who would have their increase capped at 15% and medium properties with an RV under £100k capped at 25%.
Specific rules apply when properties are empty for a period of time. More about unoccupied properties.
