BIN CHANGES - If you live in the Chantry area of Ipswich please put your bins out on Thursday evening this week so that crews can start earlier on Friday and avoid the road closures that will be in place for the Ed Sheeran concerts. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Rate Relief

You are here

Charities and registered Community Amateur Sports Clubs are entitled to relief from rates on any non-domestic property which is wholly or mainly used for charitable, or club, purposes.

Relief is given at 80% of the full rate bill or the transitional bill where the transitional arrangements apply. Billing authorities have the discretion to reduce the bill further.

Authorities can also give relief to certain bodies not established or conducted for profit. This is a discretionary relief. The purpose of the organisation applying for the relief must be philanthropic, religious or concerned with education, social welfare, science, literature or the fine arts. For more information, please contact the Business Rates Section.
