Certain types of business in villages with a population of 3,000 or less, may qualify for rate relief of 50% (100% from April 2017).
Businesses that qualify are:
- The sole general store and the sole Post Office in the village - provided it has a Rateable Value of up to £8,500
- Any food shop with a Rateable Value of up to £8,500
- The sole pub and the sole petrol station in the village - provided it has a Rateable Value of up to £12,500
We may decide to give up to 100% relief to any other business in such a village, with a rateable value of up to £16,500 - if we are satisfied the business is of benefit to the community.
An application form for Mandatory and Discretionary Rural Rate Relief is available on request. Please contact the Revenues Team.
