Transitional Reliefs

Revaluation Transitional Relief

The Revaluation Transitional Relief caps bill increases caused by the 2023 revaluation.

The caps are a percentage of the amount you had to pay as at 31 March 2023.

The caps will not be adjusted for inflation and last for one financial year.

Rateable Value (per property) 2023 to 2024
Up to £20,000 12.5%
£20,001 to £100,000 25%
Over £100,000 37.5%

The cap applies before any other reliefs.

This relief will automatically be applied to your bill.

Small Business Transitional Relief

The Small Business Transitional Relief caps bill increases if the 2023 revaluation meant that you:

  • are no longer eligible for the Small Business Bonus Scheme
  • saw a reduction in your eligibility for the Small Business Bonus Scheme
  • are no longer eligible for Rural Rate Relief

The maximum increase in your rates bill for each qualifying property compared to what you had to pay on 31 March 2023 is capped at £600 in 2023 to 2024.

The cap applies after any other reliefs.
