Non-domestic rates relief
Last updated: 14 November 2019

Business Growth Accelerator Relief

You might be able to get Business Growth Accelerator Relief if:

  • your premises is a new build property
  • you have to expand or make improvements to your property

New build premises

If your premises are new builds you will not have to pay non-domestic rates until 12 months after the building was completed.

Non-domestic rates also do not have to be paid on new builds until they're occupied. New tenants will then qualify for business growth accelerator relief for 12 months.

Expanding or making improvements to your premises

If you have to expand or make improvements to your property the non-domestic rates you're charged will not change for 12 months.

They will continue to be based on your old rateable value for this period of time.

Contact your local council to see if you're eligible or to apply.
