FOI Request - Backdated Small Business Rates Relief

Request 101003410600


Small Business Rates Relief was brought in by the government with effect from 1st April 2005.

We are keen to inquire how far back (to what date) local businesses in your area are now able to still re-claim Small Business Rates Relief as of say 4th October 2023.  

Response 26-10-2023

There is no provision within Non Domestic Rates legislation to prevent backdating relief. It is up to the Non Domestic Ratepayers to provide sufficient evidence or explanation, within the Non Domestic Rates legislation, for backdating. These will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
