Access government COVID-19 funds and get back on the road to recovery

Check if your retail, hospitality, or leisure business is eligible for business rates relief due to coronavirus (COVID-19)

Businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors in England do not have to pay business rates for the 2020 to 2021 tax year.


You’re eligible if your property is a:

  • shop
  • restaurant, café, bar or pub
  • cinema or live music venue
  • assembly or leisure property – for example, a sports club, a gym or a spa
  • hospitality property – for example, a hotel, a guest house or self-catering accommodation

How to apply

You do not need to take any action. Your local council should apply the discount automatically.

You can estimate the business rate relief using the business rates calculator.

Get in touch if you’re not getting a relief you think you’re entitled to.

When it applies

The relief will apply to your business rates bills for the 2020 to 2021 tax year. Your local council may have to reissue your bill, but will do this as soon as possible.
