SBRR scheme from 1 April 2012 to 31 March 2017

If you occupied a non domestic property prior to 1 April 2017, any application for Small Business Rate Relief (SBRR) will be awarded using the criteria outlined in the SBRR scheme that was in force until 31 March 2017.

If you occupied a property with a Rateable Value (RV) below £18,000 and were not entitled to another Mandatory Relief then your bill will be automatically calculated using the Small Business Multiplier.

If your Rateable Value was less than £12,000 you may have been entitled to a percentage reduction of up to a maximum of 100 percent. The percentage reduction can only be given if you occupy either:

  • One property or;
  • One main property, with any additional properties having an RV less than £2,600 and the total rateable value of all properties remains under £18,000* (Rate Relief is only available on the main property, not the additional properties).

If you wish to apply, please read the guidance notes attached to the Icon for pdf application form [117.83KB]before making your application.
