Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone business rates discounts

You may be able to get a discount of up to 100% for five years.

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.

We give discounts on business rates for five years up to a maximum of £275,000 to encourage businesses to move into the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone. 

Note that the current relief scheme does not apply to the new Enterprise Zone Extension areas.
