Business Rates - Rate Relief for Charitable Organisations

If you are a charitable organisation, under the provisions of the Local Government Finance Act 1988, charities which occupy a property wholly or mainly for the purposes of the Charity are entitled to mandatory rate relief at 80% of the rates payable.

Charging authorities also have discretion to grant relief up to 100% to certain non-profit making bodies who do not qualify for this mandatory relief. Discretionary relief is granted by three levels.

Your application will receive a response within 10 working days of receipt.
