This is a new scheme of relief available to ratepayers facing large increases in their Business Rates charge as a result of the loss of some or all of their small business or rural rate relief following the revaluation of their business premises.
Some small businesses will potentially benefit from a cap on Business Rate increases. This Relief will ensure that the increase per year in the bills of these ratepayers is the greater of:
- A percentage increase p.a. of 5 percent, 7.5 percent, 10 percent, 15 percent and 15 percent (2017 and 2018 to 2021 and 2022) all plus inflation or
- A cash value of £600 per year (£50 per month).
