Charities and registered Community Amateur Sports Clubs are entitled to 80% relief where the property is occupied by the charity or the club, and is wholly or mainly used for the charitable purposes of the charity (or that of other charities), or for the purpose of the club (or of that and other clubs).
You need to apply to us to make sure you receive the reduction. In the case of charity shops, the property must be wholly or mainly used for the sale of goods donated to a charity and the proceeds of sale of the goods must (after deduction of expenses) be applied for the purposes of a charity. Charity shops which buy in the majority of stock are not entitled to this reduction.
The authority has discretion to give further relief on the remaining bill. Full details can be obtained from the authority.
