Small Business Rate Relief may be available to you if your business premises rateable value is under £15,000. It means that you would get a discount on your Business Rates bill.
You will not pay business rates on a property with a rateable value of £12,000 or less.
For properties with a rateable value of £12,001 to £15,000, the rate of relief will go down gradually from 100% to 0%.
Some licenses are required by law nationally. However, some may be required in one location but not another. Its important for you to know whether your business activity requires a license so that your business is lawful. Fees may be payable for relevant license to operate.
