Richmondshire District Council

Richmondshire District Council has begun implementing the Government’s increase in the level of business rate discount for retail businesses - taking it from 50% to 100%, including for all of the district’s 104 pubs.

Businesses that occupy premises solely or mainly used as shops, pubs, theatres, cinemas, music venues, restaurants and any other business in the retail, hospitality or leisure sector all benefit from this relief. The change came into play on April 1 and applies irrespective of rateable value - effectively giving qualifying businesses a 12 month rate free holiday. 

All pubs should see new bills arriving in the next few weeks.
