How to get a discount on your business rates if you're a charity or non-profit organisation
Who can apply?
Charities and registered community amateur sports clubs can apply for mandatory Charity Relief. We also have the power to top this up with ‘discretionary relief’.
What relief can we give?
We can give:
- 80% mandatory relief to organisations who qualify
We may give:
- up to 20% discretionary relief where 80% mandatory relief is given
If you’re not eligible for charitable relief
We have discretionary powers to award relief to ratepayers, even if they don’t meet the criteria for any other relief. Generally, these are:
- non-profit making organisations
- rural businesses that benefit their local community (for example, sports clubs)
We can award up to 100% discretionary relief and look at each case on its own merit.
