Expanded retail discount

On 3rd March 2021, the Government announced additional business rates support for eligible retail, hospitality and leisure businesses that occupy a qualifying property.

All eligible ratepayers received a discount on their business rates bills of 100% for the first three months and there was no cash cap on this relief.

A further relief scheme is available to eligible ratepayers for the period 1st July to 31st March, which is a 66% discount.

This discount must be applied for and there is a cash cap (or limit on the amount you can receive) to this relief as follows:

  • £105,000 per business that was permitted to remain open as of 5th January, in accordance with the coronavirus rules

  • £2 million per business that was required to close
