Registered charities are entitled to 80% rate relief on non-domestic properties, which are wholly or mainly occupied for the purposes of the charity.
This includes charity shops selling donated goods.
Charities can also apply to the council for relief on all or part of the remaining 20%. This is known as a discretionary top up.
Charitable or not-for-profit organisations that are not registered with the Charity Commission can also apply for discretionary relief from the council.
You will need to fill in an application form, which you can download from this page. Please use the online enquiry form if you need more information.
