Apply for Small Business Rate Relief

There is no need to apply for the Small Business Rate Multiplier, this is automatically awarded for properties with a Rateable Value of less than £51,000.

Businesses that occupy more than one property

Your business may still qualify for SBRR, even if more than one property is occupied, providing that:

  • The additional properties have a Rateable Value of less than £2,900 each
  • The total combined Rateable Value of all occupied properties is less than £20,000
  • SBRR will be applied to the Main Property (Property with the higher Rateable Value) only.
  • From 1 April 2014 if a second property is taken on, when your business is already in receipt of Small Business Rate Relief, and the Rateable Value of the second property has a Rateable Value of £2,900 or more you can now retain SBRR on the original property for a period of 12 months.
