We have discretion to grant rate relief of up to 100 per cent on properties occupied by certain non-profit making bodies:
Applying for the relief
Applications for discretionary relief should be supported by copies of:
A full set of audited accounts relating to the two years preceding the date of application. Where audited accounts are not available, projected accounts figures should be provided instead.
To apply please complete our Relief Application Form and email to email@example.com
Potentially eligible businesses will have had the relief automatically added to their account and had an amended bill issued.
If having read the eligibility criteria in the reliefs policy document and State Aid Rules you do not qualify for the relief, you must complete the Refusal of Discretionary Relief form so that the relief can be withdrawn.
If after reading the Policy document you feel that your business meets the qualifying criteria for the scheme and have not yet had a Business Rates bill showing that the relief has been awarded, you can make an application by completing the form below.
Please note that any award of discretionary relief is granted under State Aid De Minimis Regulations.
If you have previously been awarded discretionary relief under the De Minimis Regulations, you must declare it on the De Minimus Application Form.
