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).
