Business rates expanded retail and nursery discount  2021/22

At the Budget on 3 March 2021, the Chancellor announced that eligible ratepayers will receive a 100% business rates discount from 1 April to 30 June 2021 and 66% discount from 1 July 2021 to 31 March 2022.  The discount is provided to eligible occupied properties in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors under the Expanded Retail Discount scheme and to Nurseries on the Ofsted Early Years Register under the Nursery Discount scheme 2021/22.

Bills were originally issued in March 2021 showing 100% discount for the 2021/22 financial year.  As the 100% discount ends on 30 June 2021, revised bills will be issued shortly detailing the 66% discount and balance due from 1 July to 31 March 2022.  The bills will also give details of the instalments payable from 1 July 2021.

The discounts from 1 July 2021 are subject to cash cap limits and further information and guidance can be found at GOV.UK Expanded Retail Discount and Nursery Discount
