Business Rates - Apply for empty property relief

Empty property rates are payable at 50% of what they would be if the property was occupied, or 90% where the property in question has been unoccupied for more than 3 months.

Where a property is classed as industrial, rates are not normally payable for the first 6 months if it is empty. Thereafter rates equal to 90% of the rates charge will be levied.
