Going through hardship

We support business going through hardship where we can. We can reduce the amount of business rates you owe if we are satisfied that:

  • your business would continue to struggle if we did not help
  • it is reasonable for us to do so, with having to balance that we must consider the impact on people who pay their council tax.

Please note, the council only exercises this discretion in exceptional circumstances

To see if your business is eligible for hardship relief, please read our guidance notes.

To apply for hardship relief, please complete our application form.
