Business rate relief

Small business rates relief

If you are a company or a sole trader who occupies a small property, small business rates relief may help you to pay your business rates.

The relief is available to ratepayers who have one main property, but also occupy other properties with a rateable value of less than £2,600.

The reductions available are for 2016-17 -

  • 100 per cent for ratepayers with a rateable value of £6,000 or less
  • a sliding reduction for ratepayers with a rateable value between £6,001 and £11,999
  • a lower multiplier for properties with a rateable value less than £18,000. This is now automatically granted regardless of properties occupied. An application form is still required for relief of properties with a rateable value below £12,000.

For 2016-17 the multiplier used for properties entitled for the relief is 48.4p.

New Changes for 2017

Reductions available for 2017-18 are -

  • 100 per cent for ratepayers with a rateable value of £12000 or less
  • a sliding reduction for rateable values between £12001 and £15000

For 2017-18 the government will also raise the threshold for a standard business rate multiplier from a rateable value of £18000 to £51000. The 2017 multiplier is to be confirmed by the end of 2016.
