Retail discount

In the Autumn Budget 2018 the Government announced a one third discount for eligible retail businesses with a rateable value of £51,000 up to state aid limits. The amount of relief is being increased from one third to 50% for the year 20-21 and relief is also being extended to music venues and cinemas with a rateable value of less than £51,000.
