Details of the bandings and relief you will receive should you meet the conditions of the Small Business Bonus Scheme and how to apply.

Businesses who use or are entitled to use properties with a combined rateable value of £35,000 or less may be entitled to a reduction in their rates bill.

If the combined rateable value of two or more of a business's properties in Scotland (excluding the rateable value of a property used mainly for a Reverse Vending Machine) is between £18,000 and £35,000, the scheme will give a 25% relief (reduction) for individual properties with a rateable value of £18,000 or less.

Properties that are empty or used for payday lending are specifically excluded from any reduction under this scheme.

If you receive a reduction we will review this regularly. We will also ask you to fill in an application form.
