Business Rate Reductions

Retail Relief

In the Autumn Budget 2018, the Chancellor announced that eligible retailers would receive a business rates discount of one third off their net bill for two years from April 2019. Relief will be provided to relevant occupied retail properties with a rateable value of less than £51,000 in 2019/20 and 2020/21.

To qualify for the relief the property occupied should be wholly or mainly used as a shop (for the provision of goods or services), restaurant or drinking establishment.
