Business Rates reductions

Small Business Rate relief

We may calculate Business Rates at a lower rate for those who are not entitled to other types of relief and have a rateable value of less than £15,000.

If the rateable value is less than £15,000 for the sole or main property, we will apply a percentage reduction. For a property with a rateable value of less than £12,000 the reduction could be as much as 100%.

To be eligible for this reduction the ratepayer must either:

  • occupy only one property with a rateable value of less than £15,000; or
  • occupy this as the main property, and the other properties must have a rateable value of less than £2,899 each (with a total of less than £19,999)

Small businesses which take on a new additional property will not lose their existing relief for the first 12 months.

If you meet the eligibility criteria but the small business rate relief has not automatically been shown on your bill you should complete a small Business Rate relief application form.
