Business rates holiday for retail, hospitality and leisure businesses

If your business is operating in the retail, hospitality or leisure sector (broadly shops, restaurants, caf├ęs, drinking establishments, cinemas, live music venues, leisure facilities, hotels, guest & boarding premises and self-catering accommodation) then you should pay no business rates for the 2020/21 tax year regardless of the rateable value of the property. This will now also apply to nurseries.

There is no need to apply for this holiday and your local authority should automatically reissue your business rates bill.
