Business rates relief

Rural rate relief

You could get rural rate relief if your business is in a rural area with a population below 3,000.

You will not pay business rates if your business is in an eligible area and either:

  • the only village shop or post office, with a rateable value of up to £8,500
  • the only public house or petrol station, with a rateable value of up to £12,500

You can find out more about rural rate relief on GOV.UK.

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

You need to contact our Business rates team to apply for rural rate relief.
