Support for Small Businesses

A scheme of relief will be made available to those ratepayers facing large increases as a result of the loss of small business or rural rate relief.


  • Details of the support available.

This scheme helps small businesses who have lost some or all of their small business rate relief or rural rate relief following the revaluation so that businesses will not see their bill increase by more than £600 per year.

The scheme is to last for 5 years, but the discount will end:

  •  when your bill reaches the amount you would have paid without the scheme
  •  if the property falls vacant

If you are eligible for this additional support, we will send you a new Business Rate Demand.

If you consider you are eligible for this relief and have not received a revised demand, please contact the team:
