Business rates

New business grants announced 21 December 2021

Budget 2021

On the 27 October 2021, the Chancellor announced a series of measures to support businesses from April 2022.

    • The business rates multipliers will be frozen for 2022/23. This means the multipliers will remain as 49.9p for small business (occupied premises with an RV under 51,000, not entitled to mandatory relief) and 51.2p for standard business premises.
    • Revaluations will take place more frequently. Rather than every 5 years, they will be every 3 years from April 2023.
    • Businesses in the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure sectors will be eligible for 50% Retail Discount, up to a cap of £110,000 for 2022/23
    • 'Green Energy Relief' for businesses investing in Green energy.
    • 'Business Improvement Relief' allowing businesses making improvements to their property to not see their business rates rise for 12 months.

Please see our Omicron Hospitality and Leisure Grant scheme page for more information.
