Charitable rate relief

Charities and registered community amateur sports clubs can get up to 80% relief on their Business Rates.

Any non-domestic property which is wholly or mainly used for charitable or non-profit making purposes is eligible.

A charity is an organisation established for charitable purposes. Having charitable status usually means that your business is included in the Charity Commissioner's register of charities.

You'll need to register to be classed as a community amateur sports club and claim the relief.

Please note, community interest companies (CiCs) are not classed as charities or community amateur sports clubs, and are not eligible to claim charitable rate relief. CiCs may be eligible for support through discretionary relief.

You can find out more about charitable rate relief on GOV.UK.
