Hardship relief

We, at our discretion, can award up to 100% relief from business rates to ratepayers who are experiencing hardship. However, as we fund a significant part of this relief ourself, cases will only be considered if they are in the interest of the community.

In order for us to consider granting hardship relief, an application must be made, including copies of fully audited accounts.

Further information is available within the attached guidance document below.
