Show all parts of this guide

1. Rural rate relief

You can get rural rate relief if your business is in one of East Devon's listed rural settlements and is:

  • the only general store, food shop or post office with a rateable value of up to £8,500
  • the only public house or petrol station with a rateable value of up to £12,500

We can also:

  • top up the mandatory 50 per cent relief to 100 per cent
  • give relief to other rural retail businesses of up to 100 per cent (for properties with a rateable value under £16,500)
