Melton Borough Council

All Council Tax bills in the Melton Borough are showing a 3.1% increase for the LCC element of the 2018/19 bill. The bill should show a 3.0% increase.

The error has occurred with the percentage comparison of the LCC elements in the 2018/19 bill with the 2017/18 bill. Please be assured that the charges within the bill are correct.

Apply for Charitable and Discretionary Relief

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

There is an 80% deduction of the full bill or of the transitional bill where transitional arrangements apply.

Billing authorities have the option to remit all or part of the remaining 20% of a charity's bill on this type of property. Authorities also have the option to remit all or part of any bill for a property occupied by certain organisations not established or conducted for profit (e.g. community groups or sports clubs).
