**If you have received a letter or an email requesting that you complete a Review of your Small Business Rate Relief please complete the following application form: Small Business Rate Relief Review**
Relief is available to ratepayers who occupy:
Eligible businesses will qualify for relief as follows.
The small business non-domestic rating multiplier for 2023/24 is 49.9p. The standard multiplier for 2023/24 is 51.2p
Where a property is eligible for charitable relief and small business relief, charitable relief only will apply.
Any transitional relief will be applied before any small business rate relief is applied.
Since 1 April 2017, every occupied property with a rateable value of less than £51,000 will pay the lower multiplier rather than the standard higher one, regardless of whether it is the ratepayer’s only occupied property - unless the rate payer is also in receipt of a mandatory rate relief.
We will automatically apply this lower multiplier to eligible properties - you do not need to do anything.
Since April 2014, ratepayers receiving small business relief that have taken on an additional property which would previously have disqualified them from receiving relief, will continue to receive their existing relief for 12 months.
If you think you meet these criteria and you haven't already applied for small business rate relief, please complete an application form.
