What is business rates relief?

Business rates (national non-domestic rates) reliefs reduce the amount you have to pay. In some cases, you don’t need to apply for the relief, for example if your bill changed due to the 2017 revaluation.

The amount that you pay can go up or down as a result of a revaluation. There are limits to how much your bill can increase in one go, so it will be phased in. This is known as a transitional relief.
