Business rate reliefs
Business rates retail discount scheme
Thanks to a new government scheme local retailers could receive a third off their business rates this financial year (2019-20) and next year (2020-21). We sent a reduced bill to almost 300 eligible businesses in June 2019.
If you haven't received a letter but are a local shop, restaurant, cafe or bar operating out of a property that has a rateable value of less than £51,000 a year, you may be eligible for the discount too. Read the criteria. The government has also issued guidance on the operation of the scheme.
To claim a business rates discount, you can fill in an application form.
