What if the Occupier Is a Registered Charity?

Charitable Organisations are entitled to Mandatory Relief where the property they occupy is used wholly or mainly for charitable purposes. Relief is given at 80% of the rates due. The Council has the discretion to give an additional relief, known as Discretionary Rate Relief, of up to 20% to such charities. For further information and to apply, please contact the Business Rates section.
