Small business rates relief

Your bill will be calculated using the lower multiplier 49.9p (2021/22), rather than the national multiplier 51.2p if you occupy a property with:

  • a rateable value less than £51,000 and
  • are not entitled to another mandatory relief

If you occupy a property with a rateable value up to £15,000, you will receive a reduction on a sliding scale if:

  • your business only uses one property with a rateable value of less than £15,000 or
  • you use more than one property but the rateable value for each of your other properties is less than £2,900, and the total rateable value is less than £20,000. The relief will be applied to the 'main' property.
Rateable value Percentage reduction
£12,000 and under 100%
£12,500 83%
£13,000 67%
£13,500 50%
£14,000 33%
£14,500 17%
£15,000 and above 0%

For example, if your rateable value is £13,000 then you'll get 67% off your bill.

If your rateable value is £14,500 you’ll get 17% off your bill.
