Empty Property Relief
From 1 April 2023 local councils will set their own policies for empty properties.
Check with your local council what empty property relief they offer.
Under Fresh Start, businesses occupying certain long-term empty properties may be entitled to a 100% business rates discount for their first year in those premises.
You may be eligible if:
- you started occupying the property on or after 1 April 2018 and the property had previously been empty for at least 6 months
- the property has a rateable value up to £100,000
Contact your local council to see if you're eligible or to apply.
