Businesses with a Rateable Value below £6,000 will receive 100% Relief and Businesses whose Rateable Value is £6,000 to £12,000 will receive a reducing tapered relief.

Charities are entitled to relief from rates on any non-domestic property which is wholly or mainly used for charitable purposes.
Authorities can grant discretionary relief for a property where the occupiers are not for profit organisations.
When part of a property is temporarily unoccupied, the council can ask the Valuation Office to determine the rateable values of the occupied and unoccupied parts so that relief can be granted on the unoccupied area.
Councils can grant relief to a ratepayer who would suffer hardship by paying the whole of the rates bill.
