Business rates relief

Small Business Rate relief

Small Business Rate relief is available to ratepayers if they:

  • Occupy only one property in England and have a rateable value of less than £15,000
  • Occupy one main property and other additional properties, providing that the additional properties do not have individual rateable values of more than £2,899 and the combined rateable value of all the properties is under £20,000.
  • Qualify for Small Business Rate relief when they occupy more than one property can only be granted relief on the main property.

The amount of relief is on a sliding scale. From 1st April 2017 the threshold for entitlement to Small Business Rate relief increased meaning more people are now entitled to this relief. 

Properties with a rateable value of up to £12,000 will receive 100% relief.  Properties with a rateable value of between £12,000 and £15,000 will receive tapered relief which will reduce from 100% at £12,000 down to 0% at £15,000.
