Business rates relief

You may qualify for a discount on your business rates under certain circumstances, some examples are:

  • the property is unoccupied
  • is wholly or mainly used for charitable purposes
  • it is the sole business supplying a rural area

We also have discretion to give relief on all or part of any rate bill for property occupied by certain non-profit making bodies. We can also consider giving rate relief in cases of hardship or where part of a property is beyond use for a certain period.
