Business Rates: relief for charities and sports clubs

Charities and registered community amateur sports clubs are entitled to 80% mandatory relief where the property is occupied by the charity or club and is wholly, or mainly, used for charitable purposes, or as a registered community amateur sports club. Charity shops are eligible for mandatory relief, but only where the majority of the goods for sale are donated.

Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs' website has an A to Z of Registered Community Amateur Sports Clubs. We have discretion to give further relief on the remaining bill.
