Government guidance on 100% retail business rates relief - Update 20th March
The UK Government has published guidance to local authorities setting out how the 100% retail discount, announced in the Budget and extended to all retail ratepayers on Tuesday, should be applied.
This information is important as bills are due on 1 April and many retailers are wondering whether they will have to pay them. This sets out the latest position as of Friday 20th March, and it will be updated as more information becomes available. The guidance is below for download and reference.
