If you own a small business which has a rateable value of below £18,000 a year you could claim up to half of your business rates back with the money being paid by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Mr Alistair Darling.
Across the nation only 41% of small businesses that are eligible for Business Rate Relief actually claim it back.
How much relief will you get?
Relief is on a sliding scale:
To claim back your Business Rate Relief simply fill in a Rate Relief claim form and send it off, it’s that easy! The form is a sheet of A4 paper which will take no more than 10 minutes to fill out. What are you waiting for…get claiming!
