Business Rate relief

You can get small business rate relief if:

Contact your local council to apply for small business rate relief.

If the 2017 revaluation means you no longer get small business relief, your bill won’t increase by more than £50 a month from 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018.

What you get

You won’t pay business rates on a property with a rateable value of £12,000 or less.

For properties with a rateable value of £12,001 to £15,000, the rate of relief will go down gradually from 100% to 0%.

Examples

If your rateable value is £13,500, you’ll get 50% of your bill. If your rateable value is £14,000, you’ll get 33% off.

You have more than one property

When you get a second property, you’ll keep getting any existing relief on your main property for 12 months.

You can still get small business rate relief on your main property after this if both the following apply:

You’re a small business but don’t qualify for relief

If your property in England has a rateable value below £51,000, your bill will be calculated using the small business multiplier, which is lower than the standard one. This is the case even if you don’t get small business rate relief.

The small business multiplier is 46.6p and the standard multiplier is 47.9p from 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018.
