Payment of relief

Relief granted is in the form of a reduction to non-domestic rate liability. The relief will be credited direct to the organisation’s non-domestic rate account and applied in accordance with the payment.

The applicant must inform us of any change in circumstances that affect the award of relief in particular of any further assistance given that impacts upon the financial standing of the company or eligibility for financial assistance including state aid.
