Opt out of business rates relief

If you would like to opt out of receiving a retail discount or nursery (childcare) discount from 1 April 2021, please use this form.   

Once we have received your form we will remove your discount and send you a revised bill. 

If receiving 66% discount on your property from 1 July 2021 will mean that you exceed the cash cap appropriate to your business, please use this form to tell us.

We will issue you a new bill once your entitlement to 100% discount ends. 

This form will ask you to provide

  • Your name and position within the organisation
  • Your business rates account reference
  • The full name of the ratepayer
  • Your business address and contact details
  • Correspondence address (if different from your current business address).

This form must be completed by the ratepayer or someone authorised to do so on their behalf.

Please have this information ready as pages time-out after one hour.
