At the Budget on 27 October 2021, the Chancellor announced the introduction of a new business rates relief scheme for retail, hospitality and leisure properties.

The 2022/23 Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Business Rates Relief scheme will provide eligible, occupied, retail, hospitality and leisure properties with a 50% relief, up to a cash cap limit of £110,000 per business.

The scheme will be for occupied properties only that are wholly or mainly being used:

  1. as shops, restaurants, cafes, drinking establishments, cinemas or live music venues
  2. for assembly and leisure; or
  3. as hotels, guest & boarding premises or self-catering accommodation

This relief will be automatically added by Stratford-on-Avon District Council and will be detailed on your bill.

If you have not had relief and think you are eligible, or for further information, please contact Revenues:
