For the 2019/20 and 2020/21 financial years, the Government has announced a 1/3rd reduction from your bill if you are a retail store.

Retail Discount

The Government announced in the Autumn statement 2018 a third off of Business Rates bills for certain property occupied for retail purposes.

Which properties qualify for Retail Discount?


I have not received Retail Discount, what should I do?

The Council will try and identify property likely to qualify and automatically award the relief by the end of April.  Those businesses will be sent a letter for them to confirm and De Minimus aid that they may also have received.

Businesses that we have identified that may qualify have been sent a letter.  If you have not received one, but think based on the Government scheme above that you should qualify for this relief, please contact us using  using our online enquiry form.
