Manage your payments

To help manage your payments, you could:

Check if you can get a discount or exemption

You may be able to get your business rates reduced, for example if your business is small, your property has a low rateable value, you have an empty property or occupy a property that was recently unoccupied.

Find out if you can get a discount or exemption.

Get financial support

If you’re having trouble getting a loan from a bank you may be able to get financial support from a government scheme or another organisation.
