Transitional relief scheme

Transitional relief is designed to reduce the impact of any significant changes in rates liability - whether the change is up or down.  If you are eligible for transitional relief it will be automatically awarded when your bill is calculated.

Transitional adjustment limits the percentage your business rates bill can be increased or decreased each year following revaluation.

The transitional adjustment will apply each year until your bill reaches what your full bill would have been in 2017.

The full 2017 bill is calculated by multiplying the rateable value by the multiplier.
