Business Rate Relief
Rural Rate Relief
Certain types of businesses in rural villages with a population below 3,000 may qualify for rate relief of 50%. Businesses that qualify for this relief are:
• the only village shop or post office with a rateable value of up to £8,500;
• the only pub or petrol station with a rateable value of up to £12,500.
The Council has the discretion to give further relief on the remaining bill of such a village business.
Kettering Borough Council may decide to give up to 100% relief to any other business in such a rural area with a rateable value of up to £16,500, if it is satisfied that the business is of benefit to the community and having regard to the interests of its council tax payers.
