The Government has announced a new relief scheme for retail properties that have a rateable value of below £51,000.
The definition of retail properties will follow that adopted from the previous retail relief scheme in 2014/15 and 2015/16. We now have guidance on the scheme available to you. The relief will have effect for 2019/20 and 2020/21 and eligible businesses will have the relief automatically added to their account. State aid rules will apply to the retail relief in the normal way.
