Reliefs and Exemptions
Rate Relief for non-profit making organisations
If an organisation does not qualify for mandatory rate relief, the council may still consider granting discretionary rate relief of up to 100 per cent of the rates bill.
To be eligible the ratepayer must be a non-profit making body and the property must be used for charitable, philanthropic or religious purposes, or concerned with;
- social welfare
- literature and fine arts
- recreation (for example an athletics club or a town band)
Any decision to grant relief will take into account the individual merits of each case.
