2019/20 business rates bills
We have calculated the new business rates bills for the period 2019/20, and we will be issuing them during the week commencing 4 March 2019.
Retail Discount - Update - March 2019
At Autumn Budget 2018, the Government announced a one-third discount for eligible retail businesses with a rateable value of less than £51,000, up to state aid limits. This scheme will run for two years from April 2019. This discount will be applied to the bill after the application of any reliefs, excluding any local discounts. We are currently waiting for our software to be updated, and we will automatically award this discount to qualifying businesses once it is ready. We expect to be issuing new bills including the Retail Discount in early April 2019. Until then businesses should pay their instalments in line with their most recent bill.
