Mandatory Rate Relief

Registered Charities

How do you qualify? 

You must be a registered charity or a charitable organisation that is exempt from charitable registration and you must be using the property wholly or mainly for charitable purposes.  If the property is empty you can still claim rate relief if the property will be used wholly or mainly for charitable purposes when next in use.

What do you get? 

Qualifying charities can claim 80% reduction in their Business Rates if the property is occupied or 100% relief from empty rates if the property is empty.

How do you apply?

Please complete the Mandatory Charitable Rate Relief application form and return it with your supporting documentation. 

 

Sports Clubs 

How do you qualify? 

Your club must have Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) status.  For more information about registering as a CASC, please see the Government guidance.

What do you get?

If your club has Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) status you can claim an 80% reduction in your Business Rates.  If the property is empty you can claim 100% relief from empty rates as long as the property will be used by a CASC when next in use.

How do you apply?

Please provide us with a copy of your CASC registration to claim the relief.
