Discretionary business rates relief revaluation scheme

You may be able to claim relief if your business rates have increased following revaluation and you meet the following criteria:

  • The rateable value of the property for 2017/18 is greater than £12,000 and less than £200,000 and
  • The increase in the 2017/18 bill for the property is more than 9 percent compared to the 2016/17 bill (after reliefs) and
  • You have continually occupied the property from before 1 April 2017

To apply for this relief complete the application form and email it to businessrates@herefordshire.gov.uk

We will consider your application against the eligibility criteria and if we award the relief, it will be applied to your account and backdated to 1 April 2017. You should continue to pay your current business rates bill until we have advised you otherwise.
