North Norfolk District Council has the discretionary power to reduce or remit the payment of your business rate bill by granting Hardship Relief.

50% of this relief is paid by the Government and 50% by local taxpayers from council tax. Therefore we must satisfy ourselves that in granting relief, it is in the interests of the local council tax payers.

Application for Hardship Relief should be made in writing, giving details of why you believe we should support your application.

Before submitting an application for relief please ensure you have read the below guidance notes/policy statement. This will enable you to provide any appropriate financial/non-financial information to support your case.
