Spring Budget 2021
On the 3rd March 2021, the Chancellor announced a number of measure to support Businesses.
Expanded Retail Relief
The government will continue to provide eligible retail, hospitality and leisure properties in England with 100% business rates relief from 1 April 2021 to 30 June 2021. This will be followed by 66% business rates relief for the period from 1 July 2021 to 31 March 2022, capped at £2 million per business for properties that were required to be closed on 5 January 2021, or £105,000 per business for other eligible properties.
Nurseries will also qualify for relief in the same way as other eligible properties.
Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council will identify those businesses that are eligible for Retail Relief and will issue revised Business Rates Demand Notices in April 2021 for the 100% relief. A further bill will be issued mid-June 2021 detailing the 66% relief.
Should your business wish to opt out from the Retail Relief scheme in 2021, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your account.
