Charitable and Discretionary Relief

Charities are entitled to relief from rates on any non-domestic property that is wholly or mainly used for charitable purposes.

Registered Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) are also entitled to relief from rates on any non-domestic property that is wholly or mainly used for the purposes of that club, or that club and of other such registered clubs.

In both cases, relief is given at 80% of the bill. Local councils have discretion to give further relief on the remaining bill.

Kettering Borough Council also have discretion to give relief on all or part of any rate bill for property occupied by certain non-profit making bodies.
