Support for Businesses

The chancellor announced changes to business rates from 1 April 2017 which provided further support to those facing significant increases in bills following revaluation.

These included:

  1. Support for small businesses losing small business or rural rate relief to limit increases in their bills.
  2. Funding given to local authorities to provide support to business facing significant increases in their bills following revaluation (revaluation support relief).
  3. The introduction of a £1,000 business rates discount for public houses with a rateable value up to £100,000

It's not too late to apply for the reliefs. If you feel you may qualify, download a form from our Business Rates – reductions and reliefs section or contact the Business Rates section immediately to discuss.

Note: State aid limits apply to these reliefs.
