Charitable and discretionary relief

You can claim rate relief if you are a charity, registered community amateur sports club or other non-profit organisation.

 

Charity and registered community amateur sports club relief

Charities and registered community amateur sports clubs can claim charitable rate relief of up to 80% if the building is used for charitable or sports club purposes. This is called mandatory relief.

We have the discretion to give further relief on the remaining 20% of the bill. Please contact us for further details.
 

Non-profit voluntary and community organisation relief

We also have the discretion to give rate relief to non-profit voluntary and community organisations.
