Charitable relief for business rates.
Areas of Local Discretion – Relief from Business Rates
As part of its role in the administration of National Non-Domestic Rates (NNDR), commonly referred to as Business Rates, Copeland Borough Council has several areas where it can exercise its discretion to provide reductions to the amounts of business rates that are due to be paid.
The principal consideration when making an award is that any relief granted is in the best interests of the residents and taxpayers of Copeland and produces a local benefit.
