Business Growth Accelerator Relief

From 1 April 2018, business rates relief (known as Business Growth Accelerator Relief) may be available to ratepayers of new build property and to those expanding or making improvements to an existing property.

New build properties

If your premises are new builds, entered onto the Valuation Roll from 1 April 2018 onwards, you will pay no rates until the premises are occupied.

Once occupied, the ratepayer will continue to receive full 100% rates relief for a further 12 months.

Expanded or improved premises

Where premises are expanded or improved and the rateable value increases as a result of this, you will not pay this increase for 12 months.

The rates for this period will be based on the ratable value prior to any such improvements being made.
