There have been further changes to Small Business Rate Relief with effect from 1 April 2017.

  • For businesses with a rateable value of 12,000 or less, 100% relief may be granted. This means that ratepayers with rateable values of £12,000 or less will pay no rates at all for the period.
  • Rate payers with rateable values between £12,000 and not more than £15,000 will receive tapered relief from 100% – 0%.
  • Occupied properties which have an RV of less than 51,000 will be calculated using the lower multiplier. 


    If your circumstances change, for example you occupy another property anywhere else in England, then you must notify the Council immediately as this may affect your entitlement to the relief.

    Please note that it is not possible to claim Small Business Rate Relief against empty properties.
