Hardship relief is a rate relief which may be awarded at the discretion of the Authority to ratepayers who are suffering financial hardship in payment of their Business Rates.
Tameside MBC will only consider applications for hardship relief in exceptional circumstances from ratepayers whose business, if to cease trading would have a detrimental effect on the local community, for example, a village shop which serves local residents.
If you feel that you may qualify for hardship relief, please complete and return the attached Hardship Relief Application Form (0.02MB)
Once the form has been received, your application will be processed and you will be notified of the outcome.
Should you require any further information on hardship relief, please contact the Business Rates Team on:
