Business rate exemptions and reliefs
Certain types of property are exempt from the payment of business rates. This means that no business rates are charged for them.
All non-domestic properties, except certain qualifying industrial properties, which are empty and unused are exempt from payment of business rates for a continuous period of three months from the date on which they first became empty.
Business rate relief
Certain businesses and organisations qualify for business rate relief. Organisations that are suffering severe hardship may also qualify.
