Some properties are eligible for discounts on their business rates. This is called 'business rates relief'.
We automatically apply:
- exempted buildings and empty buildings relief
- transitional relief if your rates change by more than a certain amount at revaluation.
Contact us if you're not getting a relief you think you're entitled to.
The government has announced there will be extra relief for businesses in England with the biggest rates increases as a result of the 2017 revaluation.
If your premises are affected by local disruption
You may get a temporary reduction in your business rates if your premises are affected by severe local disruption (like flooding, building or roadworks).
