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 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.
