Retail Discount 2019 to 2021
In the Autumn Budget 2018, the Government announced a new relief scheme for retail properties that have a rateable value of below £51,000. Under this scheme, eligible ratepayers will receive a one third discount of their final bill. The definition of retail properties will follow that adopted from the previous retail relief scheme in 2014/15 and 2015/16.
The relief will have effect for 2019/20 and 2020/21 and State aid rules do apply.
Retail Discount will be awarded automatically where the qualifying criteria are clearly satisfied, and where not, application forms will be issued on request. Both the form and qualifying criteria can be found below.
