Apply for a business rate reduction

There are a number of ways you can apply to reduce the amount you pay in business rates which are outlined in this guide.

Advice on claiming these discounts is available free from the Council. You do not need to employ expensive rating advisors who will usually charge a percentage of any reduction they may secure for you, and in some cases could end up increasing your rates bill.
