Charitable relief

You could get charitable rate relief if your property is mainly used for charitable purposes.

Charitable rate relief gives you up to 80% off your business rates bill.

We may also be able to top up the discount so that you do not have to pay business rates. This is called ‘discretionary relief’.

  • youth organisations
  • arts, music, religious and philanthropic groups

The level of relief given will depend on the type of organisation.
