Transitional Relief and Supporting Small Business Relief
For the financial year 2022/23, the Government are extending the Transitional Relief and Supporting Small Business Relief for eligible businesses with a rateable value up to and including £100,000.
The Transitional Relief scheme was originally introduced in 2017 to help businesses faced with higher bills as a result of increased rateable values from the 2017 revaluation. The scheme was due to end on 31 March 2022, as a result of which a small number of ratepayers would be presented with a significantly increased business rates bill from 1 April 2022.
In the October Budget the Government announced that it would extend the current transitional relief scheme and the supporting small business scheme for 1 year to the end of the current revaluation cycle.
The scheme will restrict increases in bills to 15% for businesses with small properties (up to and including £20,000 rateable value) and 25% for medium properties (up to and including £100,00 rateable value).
