Back to Grant Finder

What is the Business Support?

Businesses in the retail and hospitality sector and those running nursery settings across England for the 2020-2021 tax year are eligible for a business rates holiday. Businesses that have already received the retail discount in the 2019-2020 tax year will be re-billed by their local authority as soon as possible.


You’re eligible if your property is a:

  • shop
  • 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

How to find out more?

You do not need to take any action. Your local council will apply the discount automatically.

You can estimate the business rate relief using the business rates calculator.

Contact your local council if you’re not getting a relief you think you’re entitled to.
