Transitional Arrangements from 1 April 2021

How much your bill can change by from one year to the next depends on both:

  • your property's rateable value
  • whether your bill is increasing or decreasing as a result of revaluation

You stop getting transitional relief when your bill reaches the full amount set by a revaluation. 

If your bill is increasing

If you have received a Transitional Certificate following a change in rateable value, then the transitional certificate value will be used in the business rates calculation for your property instead of the usual rateable value.
