Rural Rate Relief

The occupier of a post office, general store or food shop in a settlement appearing in our Rural Settlement List is entitled to rate relief if it is the only such business in that settlement and its rateable value is £8,500 or less. As is the occupier of the only pub or petrol filling station as long as its rateable value is up to £12,500.

An eligible ratepayer is entitled to Mandatory Rural Rate Relief at 100% of the full occupied charge.

We also have the discretion to allow varying levels of relief on the rates bill on any other property within a settlement shown on the Rural Settlement List if its rateable value is not more than £12,000 and we are satisfied that the business in occupation is of benefit to the local community.
