Rural Rate Relief

You can get 100% off your business rates if your property is in a designated rural area with a population below 3,000 and it is:

  • a small food shop, general store or post office with a rateable value below £8,500
  • a small hotel, public house or petrol filling station with a rateable value of up to £12,750
  • any other business providing a benefit to the community with a rateable value of up to £17,000

Contact your local council to find out if you're in a designated rural area and if you're eligible for this relief.
