Unoccupied properties

Empty property relief.

How to claim empty property relief

Business rates are not payable in the first three months that a property is empty, this is extended to six months in the case of certain industrial properties.

After this time you will need to pay business rates in full unless the rateable value is less than £2899 or an exemption applies. We will write to you and send out a bill once the relief has ended.
