2018 Autumn Budget - Retail Relief
The Government has announced a new relief scheme for retail properties that have a rateable value of below £51,000. Under the scheme, eligible ratepayers will receive a one third discount of their daily chargeable amount. The relief will have effect for 2019-20 and 2020-21. State aid rules will apply to the retail relief in the normal way. It is anticipated that relief will be automatically awarded.
