Small business relief

The Welsh Government introduced a new, permanent small business relief scheme on 1 April 2018. Business premises with a rateable value of up to £6,000 get 100% relief. Those with a rateable value between £6,001 and £12,000 have relief on a tapered basis from 100% to zero.

Approximate rates of tapered relief
Rateable value Percentage of relief
0 to 6,000 100
7,000 83.4
8,000 66.6
9,000 50.0
10,000 33.3
11,000 16.6
12,001 0

Eligibility for relief

Occupied properties get business relief automatically, and the demand notice will show this. Where a ratepayer is liable for over two properties on a single local non-domestic rating list, only up to two such properties can have relief.

Certain types of business property such as those based on the use of premises must tell us about their eligibility before relief can be granted. Please contact us for more information.
