Small business rate relief is aimed at helping small businesses with the payment of business rates.
The amount of business rates you pay is affected by the rateable value of your business premises. Find out more about business rates.
A property must be occupied to qualify for small business rate relief, and one of the following conditions must apply:
If the ratepayer has multiple properties, small business rate relief can only be awarded on the property with the highest rateable value. Any additional properties will pay the full business rate charge.
Businesses already receiving small business rate relief that take on an additional property will continue to receive their existing relief on the original property for 12 months.
If your property meets the above criteria, you can apply for small business rate relief using the online form below.
Properties with a rateable value of up to £12,000 will receive 100% relief on business rates.
For properties with a rateable value between £12,000 and £14,999, relief is awarded on a sliding scale.
Properties with a rateable value of £15,000 and above are not eligible for relief.
