COVID-19 Additional Relief Fund (CARF)

The COVID-19 Additional Relief Fund (CARF) is to provide an additional business rates support package, worth £1.5 billion, to support businesses in England affected by COVID-19 but not eligible for existing support linked to business rates.

CARF qualifying businesses will receive 20% relief from business rates after all other reliefs and discounts have been applied for the 2021/2022 business rates year.
