Charity relief, relief for registered community amateur sport clubs (CASCs) and discretionary relief
Charities are entitled to relief from rates on any non-domestic property wholly or mainly used for charitable purposes. Registered CASCs are also entitled to relief from rates on any non-domestic property wholly or mainly used for the purposes of that club or other such registered clubs. In both cases, successful applications will receive relief of 80% of the bill and we have discretion to give further relief.
We have discretion to give relief on all or part of any rate bill for a property occupied by certain non-profit making bodies. We can consider giving rate relief in cases of hardship or where part of a property is beyond use for a certain period.
For more information about charitable mandatory or discretionary relief, contact our business rates team on 01329 824651 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
