To apply to both register and apply for relief you can use the online form service. You’ll need to sign in to or set up a Government Gateway account.
Instead, you can apply to get relief using the postal form (HO27). If you use this postal form, you may also need to fill in form H027B to register for the Industrial Reliefs Scheme.
