Retail Discount

At Autumn Budget 2018, the Chancellor announced that eligible retailers will receive a one third discount on their business rates bills for two years from April 2019.

Relief will be provided to eligible occupied retail properties with a rateable value of less than £51,000 in 2019/20 and 2020/21. Your current rates bill includes this Retail Discount. 

All current rate payers who qualify for the discount have been written to. There is an option to refuse to receive the discount. If you want to refuse it a form was included with the letter. If you do not have your form or need another you can download one here: refusal of Retail Discount form.

Full guidance issued is available on GOV.UK
