Non-domestic rates - money off your bill

Relief for charities and non-profit organisations

Charitable relief

Up to 100% relief is given where a property is occupied by a Scottish registered charity for a charitable purpose, but is not available to charity trading companies. The amount of relief we give depends on the use of the property.

Discretionary relief

For local organisations not conducted for profit we can award up to 100% relief where they are concerned with activities including recreation, philanthropic or religious interests or concerned with education, social welfare, science, literature or the fine arts. Please note that education does not include further education.
