Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm

Any businesses that are eligible for the increase to 100% business rate relief will be sent a revised bill.  Liberata are also currently running a list to identify any new businesses that would fall into this category.

Any pubs eligible for the government-funded relief will also be sent a revised bill as this has increased from £1k to £5k per eligible property.
