Support for businesses that pay little or no business rates

Grants for businesses who pay little or no business rates

The Government will provide additional Small Business Grant Scheme funding for local authorities to support small businesses that already pay little or no business rates because of small business rate relief (SBBR), rural rate relief (RRR) and tapered relief.

This will provide a one-off grant of £10,000 to eligible businesses to help meet their ongoing business costs 


You are eligible if: 

  • your business is based in England 
  • you are a small business and already receive SBBR and/or RRR  
  • you are a business that occupies property 
How to access the scheme

You do not need to do anything. Your local authority will write to you if you are eligible for this grant. 

Any enquiries on eligibility for, or provision of, the reliefs and grants should be directed to the relevant local authority.
