Relief for Partly Occupied Properties

The Council has the power to issue a request for the Valuation Officer to provide a certificate apportioning the rateable value of property which is partly occupied "for a short time only".

The effect of the apportioned values enables a reduction of 100% to be made against the rateable value of the un-occupied part.

Exceptional circumstances need to apply in order for the Council to exercise this discretion.

Contact the Business Rates section to apply.
