How to apply for Small Business Rate Relief

If your property has a rateable value below £51,000, we will automatically calculate your liability using the small business rate multiplier – you do not need to apply for this.

To receive 100% small business rate relief your rateable value must be below 12,000 (6000 prior to 1/4/17) and relief on a sliding scale on rateable values between 12,000 and 15,000 (6,000 and 12,000 prior to 1/4/17). We ask that you make an application and the form should be completed by the ratepayer or a person authorised to complete it on their behalf, as follows;

• Where the ratepayer is a partnership, a partner of that partnership
• Where the ratepayer is a trust, a trustee of that trust
• Where the ratepayer is a body corporate, a director of that body

In any other case, the application should be made by a person duly authorised to sign on behalf of the ratepayer.
