My Department is currently consulting on the £300 million discretionary relief scheme. The scheme will enable local authorities to help those individual businesses that are facing increased rates bills. Local authorities will be responsible for the design of local schemes which will include setting the eligibility criteria that will apply. The consultation is available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/discretionary-business-rates-relief-scheme
Additionally, the £110 million Supporting Small Business Relief Scheme will also be available to assist those ratepayers losing small business rates relief or rural rate relief as a result of revaluation.
