We have circulated a number of updates highlighting help currently available to business through the Expanded Retail Discount Scheme, Grant Funding Schemes and existing empty property rate legislation.

Andrew West’s update on 24th March stressed the importance of contacting your billing authority to claim empty property rate relief on properties vacated as a result of government guidance on safe home working.

We are however aware that there is some inconsistency in the approach currently being adopted by billing authorities throughout the UK on this. If you are experiencing any difficulties in securing rate relief please do not hesitate to contact one of our business rates team.

Contact details for our team can be found here.

All updates issued to date can also be found on our website news page.

Kind regards

Jane Shankland
