Business rates are the way that those who occupy commercial property contribute towards the cost of local services.
The COVID-19 Additional Relief Fund (CARF) Scheme has now been awarded to local businesses. This is not a grant and will be applied automatically to eligible ratepayer’s business rates accounts for the 2021/22 financial year.
For further information please see our Business rates reductions page outlining the full policy document.
