Revaluation support scheme
All local authorities have been provided with a sum of money under discretionary powers, which means there is no proposed national scheme or guidance on awarding relief and it needs to be determined locally. Eligible ratepayers will have already had the relief applied to their bill for 2017-18. The scheme for 2018-19 is still being considered.
For further information concerning the scheme, please contact the non-domestic rating section on 01246 345425 or email@example.com.
The government have announced that public houses with a rateable value of under £100,000 will receive a £1000 discount in the years 2017-18 and 2018-19 subject to state aid limits.
Supporting small business relief scheme
Those ratepayers facing large increases in their bill due to the loss of Small Business Rate Relief or Rural Rate Relief will have the increase capped. Please see the guidance notes below for further information.
