Businesses in the West Lindsey District who have seen a rise in their business rates liability due to the revaluation which took effect on 1 April 2017 will receive application forms for a New Local Discretionary Relief which was approved by Corporate Policy and Resources Committee 9 November 2017.
These application forms will be issued on 22 November 2017 and should be completed and returned to Business Rates, PO Box 1257, Lincoln LN5 5PQ by return of post if possible.
The scheme for the West Lindsey District Council for the period 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018 is to award 65% relief for any eligible property by comparing the 2016/17 bill with the 2017/18 bill. Relief will be awarded after other reliefs eg: transitional relief, supporting small business rate relief and public house relief have been taken into consideration.
Applications for the Local Discretionary Relief for 2017/2018 must be received by the Council no later than 31 December 2017
