Business Rates relief for charities and sports clubs

Entitlement to 80% mandatory relief to charities and registered community amateur sports clubs is where occupation of the property, the charity, or club, is wholly or mainly used for charitable purposes.

Charity shops are only eligible for mandatory relief by the donation of the majority of their goods for sale.

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.
