Business rate discounts if part of your building is empty

You may be able to get temporary relief.

If you make any changes to your circumstances or payment methods after 2 March 2018, we will be aware of the changes but they won't show up in your annual bill. 

This is because we're currently in the process of issuing the annual bills and unable to add any changes.

You'll be sent an up to date bill after 5 April 2018.

You’re still liable for your business rates, but if part of your building is going to be empty temporarily we'll sometimes consider reducing your business rate liability.
