RATE RELIEF FOR BUSINESSES AFFECTED BY
THE OUTBREAK OF FOOT AND MOUTH DISEASE

Businesses in affected areas may be eligible for a reduction in their Business Rates for up to three months from 1st April 2001. To obtain a reduction businesses must be able to show that they have suffered financial hardship through the impact of foot and mouth disease.


If your business is suffering financial hardship please contact the Council's Revenue Customer Services Section on (01594) 812568 for an application form and further advice.


In addition to the above, businesses can make an appeal for a temporary reduction in their Rateable Value to reflect the circumstances affecting the Rateable Value of their business premises. Appeals must be made while the temporary circumstances are in effect.
