In the autumn Statement on 5th December 2013, the government announced that it will provide business rates relief of up to £1,000 to all occupied retail properties with a rateable value of £50,000 or less that are wholly or mainly being used as shops, restaurants, cafes and drinking establishments in each of the years 2014/15 and 2015/16.
Here at Coombe Hope we would urge you to check your most recent business rates bill as there may have been a form included which will allow you to claim the relief.

Alternatively, some local authorities have been automatically applying the relief so check your bill and see if this has happened.
If you would like to know more about this please contact us at Coombe Hope and we will be happy to assist you with any claim you may need to submit.
