Discretionary relief

We may be able to offer discretionary Business Rates relief to non-domestic properties occupied by:

  • not-for-profit organisations whose main objectives are charitable, philanthropic, religious, concerned with education, social welfare, science, literature, or the fine arts
  • not-for-profit organisations occupying premises wholly or mainly for the purposes of recreation
  • some organisations already getting mandatory relief (as above) – this would 'top up' the discount to 100%

We consider every application for discretionary relief on an individual basis. Any offer of discretionary relief will be reviewed every year.

We're currently reviewing our discretionary relief policy. Please contact us by emailing ndr@middlesbrough.gov.uk if you think you might be eligible.
