When a property becomes empty, there is no charge for the first three months, or six months in the case of industrial property. After the initial rate-free period has expired, the empty property will be charged 100% Business Rates. There are certain exemptions from the empty charge which include listed buildings and properties with a rateable value of less than £2,900.
