At the Autumn Statement on 17 November 2022, the Chancellor announced the introduction of a new business rates relief scheme for retail, hospitality and leisure properties worth around £2.1 billion in 2023 to 2024.
The 2023/2024 retail, hospitality and leisure business rates relief scheme will provide eligible, occupied, retail, hospitality and leisure properties with a 75% relief, up to a cash cap limit of £110,000 per business.
The guidance below outlines the operation and delivery of the policy. The government expects that local authorities will include details of the relief to be provided to eligible ratepayers for 2023/2024 in their bills for the beginning of the 2023/2024 billing cycle.
