This is based on the rateable value (RV) of your business. It is aimed at helping small businesses that are not entitled to another mandatory relief.
Who can apply
Businesses that occupy only one property in England and have an RV of less than £15,000. Your business may also qualify if you occupy one main property and other additional properties, providing that:
If you qualify when you occupy more than one property, you can only be granted relief on the main property. You will continue to receive the relief for 12 months even if you take on an extra property that increases the RV past £20,000.
Small business rate relief is funded by a supplement paid by other businesses. Even if you are not entitled to the relief, you will not have to pay the supplement if your property has a rateable value above £15,000 but below £51,000.
