Nursery Discount

In March 2020, as part of its response to the coronavirus, the Government announced a business rates Nursery Discount for 2020/21.

The discount is available for properties that are occupied by a business on the Ofsted Early Years Register and are wholly or mainly used for the provision of the Early Years Foundation Stage of education.

For 2020/21 the amount of relief is 100% of the business rates bill.

At the March 2021 Budget the Government announced that the relief would continue at 100% for three months  from 1 April 2021.

From 1 July 2021 to 31 March 2022 the amount of relief will be 66% of the business rates bill (up to a total value of £105,000).

In line with Government advice we have rolled the 100% discount into 2021/22 and will reissue bills at a later date to confirm the charge payable from 1 July 2021.

Businesses may opt out of the 2021/22 discount, but if you choose to do this you cannot change your mind.
