3. Charity rate relief

Charitable organisations that occupy a non-domestic property for activities in connection with the purposes of that charity, are entitled to business rates relief of 80 percent of the bill.

We have the discretion to remit all or part of the remaining 20 per cent of the organisation's bill.

A charity shop will only receive this relief if it is wholly or mainly used for the sale of donated goods
