Hospitality Transitional Relief Scheme

All properties liable for Business Rates have been revalued from 01 April 2017. To help with the additional cost to businesses, the Scottish Government have introduced a one year transitional relief scheme for properties in the hospitality industry.

The transitional relief scheme is for one year only (2017-18) and the amount of relief awarded, if applicable, will restrict any increase to 12.5% in real terms.

Eligible properties could be as follows:

  • Bed and Breakfast accommodation
  • Camping Site
  • Caravan (as a non-domestic subject)
  • Caravan Site
  • Chalet and Holiday Huts
  • Guest house, hotel and hostels
  • Public House
  • Restaurant

Renewable Energy Generation from water only (including waves and tides but excluding production from pumped storage of water) and having a installed capacity of up to 1 megawatt:

  • Self-Catering holiday accommodation
  • Time Share accommodation

If a property is vacant, you cannot claim transitional relief.

An application form will be issued shortly to allow you to apply for this relief, if you are eligible.

To make a payment or enquire about charges contact the Rates Team on 01786 233175.
