Empty properties with no business rates

There are no business rates to pay on an empty property if:

  • it is held by a charity and is likely to be next used for charitable purposes
  • it is held by a community amateur sports club and is likely to be next used for the purposes of the club
  • it is a newly-built non-domestic property completed after 1 October 2013 and before 30 September 2016.

Please email rates@newcastle-staffs.gov.uk if this applies to your business.
