”Business rates holiday for retail, hospitality and leisure businesses – update

The Government announcement for the Business rates holiday for retail, hospitality and leisure businesses is currently being progressed. We are expecting the necessary software update from our software supplier, Capita, by the end of this week. This will enable us to re run businesses bills before the April payment date of 8th April. This will mean those businesses eligible will not have to pay any rates for 2020/21.
