Business rates reductions, discounts and exemptions

Pub Relief

At the Spring Budget, the Government also announced a relief scheme for pubs to apply during 2017/18. This relief is a 'one off' amount of £1000 for 2017/18 only and applies to all pubs with a rateable value of less than £100,000. Eligible pubs should:

  • be open to the general public
  • allow free entry other than when occasional entertainment is provided
  • allow drinking without requiring food to be consumed
  • permit drinks to be purchased at a bar.

Any relief awarded is subject to state aid limitations. If you think you may qualify for this relief and have not received an amended bill please submit an application using the form on the right.
