Business Rates

We have identified and re-billed businesses that are eligible for the expanded retail discount. Amended demand notices have now been issued to our customers. This relates to the current financial year only (1 April 2020 – 31 March 2021).

For Business Rates customers that still have arrears from the last financial year it is important that you contact us to discuss how this will be repaid. Therefore, if you have previous years arrears or if are having difficulties paying your current years charges, please contact us as a matter of urgency.

It is important that you engage with us if you are struggling to pay as we may be able to negotiate a mutually acceptable repayment plan before formal recovery proceedings are considered.

Please visit the Help paying business rates page for more information about any discounts ,reliefs or exemptions you may be entitled to.
