Business rates relief

Charitable rate relief

Charities and amateur community sports clubs can apply for relief of up to 80% if a property is used for charitable purposes.

You should also check if you can get additional discretionary relief (up to 100%). This is sometimes provided by local councils to top up certain reliefs to give businesses and charities extra help.

If you run a non-profit recreation club you're not automatically entitled to relief, but your local authority can grant discretionary relief of up to 100%.

Check with your local council to see if you're eligible.
