To help those businesses facing large increases and to limit the amount that rates can decrease the Government introduced the Transitional Relief Scheme.
The scheme applies only to the bill based on a property at the time of the revaluation. If there are any changes to the property after the revaluation date, transitional relief will not normally apply to the part of the bill that relates to any increase in rateable value. The council will automatically calculate any entitlement to transitional relief.
