Business Rates - Retail Rate Relief
At Autumn Budget 2018, the Government announced a one third discount for eligible retail businesses with a rateable value of less than £51,000, up to state aid limits. This scheme will run for two years from April 2019. This discount will be applied to the bill after the application of any reliefs, excluding any local discounts.
The Government has issued guidance on the operation of the scheme which can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/business-rates-retail-discount-guidance
This relief will be delivered through local authority discretionary local discounts.
