In some circumstances you may be eligible for a reduction to your Business Rates bill. There are several different types of reduction, or relief:
We have received funding from the Government to help with the impact of the Business Rate Revaluation which took place with effect from 1 April 2017. More about Discretionary 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.
Details of any Transitional Relief are included on your bill. If you are receiving Transitional Relief, a reduction in your rateable value may not reduce the amount you pay. Contact us for further information.
Specific rules apply when properties are empty for a period of time. More about unoccupied properties.
The Government has provided funding for Local Authorities to introduce a temporary scheme to provide a discount to all occupied retail properties with a rateable value of less than £51,000. More about Retail Discount.
