You can apply for Discretionary Rate Relief if your business is:

  • Experiencing financial hardship
Discretionary relief is awarded based on a business meeting the criteria set out within the Discretionary Rate Relief Policy. Please note that Discretionary Relief is subject to the 'De minimis' rule under State Aid
'De minimis' aid can be given for most purposes, including operating aid and is not project related. 
You must tell us if you are receiving any other Government Aid.
