Transitional phasing or relief

Transitional relief limits how much your bill can change each year as a result of revaluation. This means changes to your bill are phased in gradually, if you’re eligible. Following the revaluation of business properties from April 2017 there will be a transitional scheme to limit how much a rates bill can increase or reduce due to the revaluation.

The percentage by which a bill can change by year depends on the rateable value of the property as shown in the table:
