Business rate discounts for charities or local non-profit organisations

You may be able to get relief of up to 100%.

Charities and community amateur sports clubs can claim charitable rate relief of up to 80% if the building is used for charitable or sports club purposes. This is called mandatory relief.

Non-profit voluntary and community organisations may also be able to get discretionary relief of up to 100%.

The application form explains the kinds of organisations that qualify for both mandatory and discretionary relief.
