Business Rate Relief
Rural Rate Relief
Certain types of business in rural villages with population below 3,000 may qualify for rate relief of 50%. Businesses that qualify for this relief are:
- the sole general store and the sole post office in the village, provided it has a rateable value of up to £7,000;
- any food shop with a rateable value of up to £7,000; and
- the sole pub and the sole petrol station in the village provided it has a rateable value of up to £10,500.
Local councils have discretion to give further relief on the remaining bill of such property.
Kettering Borough Council may decide to give up to 100% relief to any other business in such a rural village, with a rateable value of up to £14,000, if it is satisfied that the business is of benefit to the community and having regard to the interests of its council tax payers.
