Business rates are the way that those who occupy commercial property contribute towards the cost of local services.
This year the Expanded Retail Discount will be automatically awarded to businesses that received the scheme last year by the council.
Business rates bills will be issued before June to show the 100 per cent business rates relief for 3 months from 1 April 2021 to 30 June 2021 and 66 per cent for the remainder of the year.
Businesses with 100 per cent small business rates relief for the year will also receive their business rates notices before June 2021.
Please see our business rates reductions page for further information.
