Business Rates Payers

Business Rates webpage

If you are a business ratepayer and would like more information on business rates for current year, rates relief or you would like to apply for a business rates account, see here.

The 100% business rates relief for eligible businesses in the retail, hospitality, leisure sectors and also for nurseries, which was applicable from 1 April, decreased to 66% on 1 July. The Council will therefore issue a new demand to business ratepayers for the 2021/22 tax year which reflects this.

If you are a business, paying business rates and have been affected by COVID-19, please see here to find out what financial support is available to your business.
