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.
We will contact all businesses where there appears to be an entitlement to this relief in March 2019.
