Administering Rate Reliefs: Everything you need to know!

  • Wednesday 11 September 2024


    This one day professional meeting will be of relevance to persons currently working within nondomestic rate; whether working in a billing authority or private sector. It will look at a billing authority’s discretionary power to award relief under Sections 44A (part-occupied), 47 (discretionary) and 49 (hardship). There will be a focus on the Government’s increasing use of existing legislation to fund discretionary relief and how discretionary powers interact with the reliefs a billing authority must award. The key case law on reliefs will be considered and reviewed. A series of workshops (using break-out rooms) will be held throughout the day to maximise delegate involvement. The ultimate aim of this professional meeting is to ensure a billing authority is complying with the law and adopting ‘good practice’, when determining an entitlement to a relief.
