Reliefs and discounts

Some properties are eligible for discounts from their local council on their business rates. This is called business rate relief or discount. Some of these schemes are applied automatically whilst others the liable registered rate payer needs to apply for.

The current schemes are summarised below.  

Expanded Retail Discount 2021 to 2022

At the Budget on Wednesday 3 March 2021 the Chancellor announced that the government would provide, as a temporary measure for 2021 to 2022, additional business rates support for eligible retail, hospitality and leisure businesses in England occupying a qualifying property. This is an extension of the discount scheme implemented in 2020 to 2021 with some amendments to the previous scheme.

The discount scheme will provide 100% relief on your bill for the first three months, from 1 April 2021 to 30 June 2021, and then the relief will be at 66% for the remaining period, from 1 July 2021 to 31 March 2022.
