Supporting Small Businesses

Supporting Small Businesses relief will help those ratepayers who as a result of the change in their rateable value at the revaluation are losing some or all of their small business or rural rate relief and, as a result, are facing large increases in their bills.

To support these ratepayers, 2023 SSBR will ensure that the increase in the bills of qualifying ratepayers is limited to a cash value of £600 per year in 2023/24 to 2025/26 after transitional relief and small business rate relief (as applicable) have been applied.

Those on 2023 SSBR whose 2023 rateable values are £51,000 or more will not be liable to pay the supplement (1.3p) to fund small business rate relief while they are eligible for 2023 SSBR

This relief has been automatically applied to eligible accounts and therefore there is no formal application process.
