You can get Small Business Rate Relief if:
Your property has a rateable value of less than £15,000
Your business only has one property – you may be able to get help if you use more than one property.

You do not need to make an application but doing so will help us process your request.
When we calculate small business rate relief the lower multiplier will automatically be applied to all properties with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000.
In addition, generally, if the sole or main property is shown on the rating list with a rateable value which does not exceed £15,000, you will receive a percentage reduction in your rates bill for this property of up to a maximum of 100%. For a property with a rateable value of no more than £12,000, you will receive a 100% reduction in the rates bill.
Generally, this percentage reduction (relief) is only available to ratepayers who occupy either-
(a) one property, or
(b) one main property and other additional properties as long as those additional properties each have a rateable value which does not exceed £2,899.
The rateable value of the property in (a), or the aggregate rateable value of all the properties mentioned in (b), must not exceed £19,999 for each day that you are applying for relief. If the rateable value, or aggregate rateable value, increases above those levels, relief will stop from the day of the increase.
For those businesses that get an additional property which would normally have meant they lose small business rate relief, the Government has confirmed that they will be allowed to keep that relief for a period of 12 months.
An application for Small Business Rate Relief is not required. If the ratepayer continues to satisfy the conditions for relief which apply at the relevant time as regards the property and the ratepayer, they will automatically continue to receive relief each year.
Certain changes in circumstances will need to be notified to us by a ratepayer who is in receipt of relief. The changes which should be notified to us are—
(a) the ratepayer taking up occupation of an additional property, and
(b) an increase in the rateable value of a property occupied by the ratepayer in an area other than the area where we granted the relief.
