Businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors in England will not have to pay business rates for the 2020 to 2021 tax year.
You’re eligible if your property is a:
- restaurant, café, bar or pub
- cinema or live music venue
- assembly or leisure property – for example, a sports club, a gym or a spa
- hospitality property – for example, a hotel, a guest house or self-catering accommodation
You do not need to take any action. Your local council will apply the discount automatically.
The relief will apply to your business rates bills for the 2020 to 2021 tax year. Your local council may have to reissue your bill, but will do this as soon as possible.
If you’re not getting a relief you think you’re entitled to you need to contact your local council e.g. West Norfolk Borough Council.
