Supporting Small Businesses - Rates Relief

This relief will help those ratepayers who, because of the change in their rateable value at the revaluation, are losing some or all their Small Business or Rural Rate Relief and, as a result, are facing large increases in their bills.

Businesses that received Small Business Rate Relief or Rural Rate Relief in 2016-2017 and, because of the revaluation, have lost some or all that rate relief, may be eligible to receive this relief. This does not apply where you have lost relief for other reasons.

The relief limits the increase in the rates bill to £600 (£50 a month). You do not need an application form. Please contact us if you think your business is eligible, or if you have not received a revised bill showing this relief.
