Business rates relief

4. Charitable rate relief

Charities and community amateur sports clubs can apply for charitable rate relief of up to 80% if a property is used for charitable purposes.

Contact your local council to:

  • check if you’re eligible
  • find out if they can top up the discount to 100% (called ‘discretionary relief’)

If you’re not eligible for charitable rate relief

You may still be able to get discretionary relief if you’re a non-profit or voluntary organisation. Contact your council to find out.
