Hardship Rate Relief
In special circumstances we have discretion to grant relief to businesses suffering financial hardship.

  • the ratepayer would sustain hardship if we did not assist; and
  • having regard to the 'interests' of the Council Tax payers, that it is reasonable for us to grant.

'Interests' of Council Tax payers may go wider than direct financial interests. For example, where employment prospects in the area would be badly affected by a company going out of business, or where amenities of an area would be severely affected due to the closure of the only village shop. Please contact us for further details on 01775 761161 selecting Business Rates.
