Thousands of pubs to benefit from UK business rates discount

Thousands of pub owners will benefit from a £1,000 business rates discount in April as part of a package of measures to support local high streets in England, HM Treasury announced.

The new “pubs relief” for pubs with a rateable value below £100,000 will come on top of an extended retail discount for those with a rateable value of below £51,000, and pubs eligible for both will get up to £13,500 off annual bills, Treasury said.
