Every local authority has the discretion to remit all or part of a Business Rates bill under section 49 of the Local Government Finance Act 1988 on the grounds of financial hardship.

We have to take into account the interests of our Council Tax payers as 75% of any relief granted is funded by the local Council Tax payers.
