Financial hardship relief

Any business which is experiencing financial hardship may make a claim for help with their business rates.

In extreme cases of hardship, up to 100% relief can be awarded. This reduction will usually be granted where it is evident that the business is particularly important to the local community.

To apply please complete the Hardship Relief application form and include a copy of your latest trading accounts. These should illustrate your current financial position.
