Can I get small business rate relief?
Depending on the rateable value of your business premises, you may be entitled to 100% reduction in business rates.
You can apply if:
- You pay business rates for one occupied business property with a rateable value of less than £15,000
- You pay business rates for more than one occupied property, but the total rateable value on all occupied properties is no more than £20,000. In this situation, you can only claim against the largest rateable premises.
How much relief can I get?
- If you business property has a rateable value of less than £12,000, you will get 100% relief
- If your business property has a rateable value between £12,000 and £15,000, you will get a percentage reduction in your bill. We use a sliding scale to work this out.
