A cash grant of up to £25,000 for those businesses with a rateable value of less than £51,000, and cash grants of £10,000 to 700,000 of the smallest businesses.

For all businesses that benefit from Small Business Rates Relief, a grant of up to £10,000 can be obtained from your local council. You will be contacted by your local authority in early April – you do not need to apply.

Local councils generally seem to require the following information: 

  • Name of business;
  • Business Rates Account Number (if available);
  • Address of business premises;
  • Key point of contact for the business;
  • Contact telephone number;
  • Contact email address.
