Business rates

Retail discount

The Government has announced that from 1 April 2019, a retail discount can be awarded to occupied retail properties with a rateable value under £51,000 where the property is being used for the sale of goods and services to visiting members of the public. If you are entitled, a discount will be applied to your account which will reduce your net rates bill by a third.

If this is not already shown on your bill and you think that you should be entitled to the discount, please follow the link below to make an application.

You do not need to pay anyone to apply for this discount.
