Business rate relief is available for businesses in a wide range of circumstances, with criteria including the nature of their business, its size or location.
Changing business circumstances can lead to business rate reliefs becoming available at various stages. These often include moving to a rural environment, or owning an empty property that once housed the business.
We advise on all aspects of business rating relief, and make a tangible difference to cost savings and levels of profit.
Small business rate relief
The rules surrounding small business rate relief are straightforward at first glance, but various opportunities for claiming exist around the basic criteria of the property’s rateable value.
If the rateable value is less than £12,000 and it is the only premises used by the business, it may be possible to claim small business rate relief. Even if a business does not appear to qualify for this relief, we may be able to identify grounds for a part-reduction.
Certain business premises valued at £50,000 or less for business rates may be able to claim retail relief.
