Business rates holiday for eligible retail, hospitality and leisure businesses in England have been introduced for the 2020 to 2021 tax year.
A £25,000 grant will be provided to retail, hospitality and leisure businesses operating from smaller premises, with a rateable value between £15,000 and £51,000.
Additional funding for local authorities to support small businesses that already pay little or no business rates because of small business rate relief (SBBR) will provide a one-off grant of £10,000 to businesses currently eligible for SBRR or rural rate relief, to help meet their ongoing business costs.
