Non-domestic rates - money off your bill
Relief may be available to reduce your bill, depending on the rateable value or use of the property. Information on reliefs currently available is in the related content section where you will also find some online application forms. If the application form you need is not online please contact us. You must tell us if your circumstances change as this could affect the amount of relief you get.
Further details on these and other reliefs is available on the Scottish Government website.
If you have already made an application for rates relief and have been asked to provide evidence in support of your application, you can use our online form to provide this
You will be asked to upload evidence on the application form. We can accept jpegs and pdf files but we advise pdfs as the file size is smaller.
Please don’t take photos of your PC screen or phone screen as these can be blurry. If you need to do this you should use the screenshot/print screen function on your PC or phone.
When you take a photo of a document such as a bank statement sometimes the file sizes are too big, especially if you have to upload a lot of different images to your form. This can cause the form to fail and we advise converting jpegs to pdfs. You can do this in the following ways.
On an Android phone

from the menu select print image
select Save as pdf
