Retail Relief

At the Budget, on 27 October the Chancellor announced the introduction of a new business rates relief scheme for retail, hospitality and leisure properties worth almost £1.7 billion in 2022/23. This will support the businesses that make our high streets and town centres a success and help them to evolve and adapt to changing consumer demands.

The 2022/23 Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Business Rates Relief scheme will provide eligible, occupied, retail, hospitality and leisure properties with a 50% relief, up to a cash cap limit of £110,000 per business. You must inform us if you exceed this limit. The aforementioned relief will end with effect on 31 March 2023.

More information and full details on eligibility can be found on GOV.UK Business rates relief page.
