From 1 April 2017 to coincide with the 2017 Rating List, ratepayers occupying a single property with a rateable value of £12000 or less will qualify for 100% relief, with relief reducing on a sliding scale until it is zero at rateable value £15000.
As in previous schemes, ratepayers occupying more than one property will be restricted by the rateable value of any additional premises. The rateable value of any additional properties must not exceed rateable value £2899.

Please note, we can only backdate claims to 1 April 2015. Backdated claims will be calculated using the thresholds and sliding scale appropriate for the period for which you are claiming.
Further advice on Small Business Rate Relief is available from the Local Taxation Office.
