Retail Discount

The Government announced in the Budget on 29 October 2018 that it would provide a business rates Retail Discount scheme for occupied retail properties with a rateable value of less than £51,000 in each of the years 2019-20 and 2020-21.

The value of the discount is one third of the bill.

Properties that benefit from the relief will be occupied properties which are wholly or mainly being used as shops, restaurants, cafes and drinking establishments.

The Council has identified qualifying properties and the discount has automatically been applied to the 2019-20 bills
