Charitable rate relief

Mandatory relief of 80% can be automatically given to registered charities where the property is occupied by the charity and is wholly or mainly used for charitable purposes of the charity or of that and other charities.

Registered community amateur sports clubs are also entitled to 80% relief on any non-domestic property that is wholly or mainly used for the purposes of the club, or other such registered clubs.

The council has the discretion to award a further 20% in certain circumstances, giving up to 100% relief.

Where a non-domestic property is occupied by certain bodies not established or conducted for profit, the council may award discretionary relief of up to 100% of the full or transitional amount due.
