Businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors in England will not have to pay business rates for the 2020 to 2021 tax year.
You’re eligible if your property is a:
- restaurant, café, bar or pub
- cinema or live music venue
- assembly or leisure property - for example, a sports club, a gym or a spa
- hospitality property - for example, a hotel, a guest house or self-catering accommodation
You do not need to take any action. Wakefield Council will apply the discount automatically and send a revised zero statement to all eligible businesses. Find out more about Business Rates Relief here.
