Apply for a business rates discount

Small business rates relief discount

You can apply for small business rate relief if:

  • you have only one property with a rateable value of £15,000 or less
  • you have a main property plus additional properties (each with an individual rateable value of less than £2,900) with the combined rateable value less than £20,000 - this discount will only apply to the main property
  • you are not receiving another mandatory relief

You won’t pay business rates on properties with a rateable value of £12,000 or less if this is your only business. The rate of relief gradually decreases for properties with a rateable value between £12,001 and £15,000.

Even if you don’t qualify for small business rate relief, and your property has a rateable value below £51,000, you will still have the bill for your main property calculated using the lower rate multiplier.
