Business rates relief

Business rate relief

As part of our support for businesses during COVID-19, we are applying Business rate relief to all eligible business accounts.

You do not need to take any further action as we have:

  • applied the discount automatically
  • sent you a new bill

The Business rate relief includes the 12-month business rates holiday for:

  • retail
  • hospitality
  • leisure
  • nursery businesses
  • estate agents
  • letting agents
  • betting shops
  • bingo halls

You may be able to get a discount, or business rates relief, on your business property, depending on:

  • the type of business your run
  • the rateable value of the business

You can download and read our Discretionary business rate relief policy.

From 1 April 2020 100% rate relief is available to occupied properties in the rating list described as Public Lavatories/Conveniences.

There is no application process for this relief. To apply, please contact the Business Rates Team on 01376 557755 providing your business rates account number and property address
