You can get business rates relief through the small business bonus scheme.
The level of relief available for each business will depend on:
- the combined rateable value of all properties in Scotland which the business occupies or, if vacant, is entitled to occupy
- whether or not each property is eligible for one of the existing rates relief schemes
- the level of other public sector assistance received by the business
The thresholds of the scheme are:
|Combined rateable value||2017-18|
|Up to £15,000||100%|
|£15,001 to £18,000||25%|
|Upper limit for cumulative (RV)* £35,000||25%|
*Businesses with multiple properties whose combined rateable value is £35,000 or less will be eligible for relief of 25% for each property with a rateable value of £18,000 or less.
