Business Rates Recovery

We appreciate that this is a difficult time for many of our businesses and that the COVID-19 virus is having a significant impact on the economy.
 
Your Business Rates pays for our essential services that are delivered to all residents in the Council, so it is really important that if your circumstances have not changed that you continue to pay what you should, maintain your direct debit payments, or payment plan, as detailed on your bill. Thank you for your contribution.
 
If you are struggling to pay your Business Rates get in touch with us. We would encourage anyone who is struggling to contact us at businessrates@tameisde.gov.uk so that we can ensure that you are getting all of the support and relief you are entitled to.
 
We can also look at your arrears so that we consider everything you owe to us and avoid any extra costs or charges.
If you are self-employed and your income reduces, you may be able to claim Universal Credit from the DWP and Council Tax Support from the Council
www.gov.uk/apply-universal-credit 
www.tameside.gov.uk/ctax/counciltaxsupport
 
We urge all businesses to pay what they can and seek advice where possible.
 
The Council are awaiting guidance in relation to support available to businesses for the 2021/22 financial year, once the information is known this page will be updated.
 
Applications for Local Restriction Support Grants are now open, if you have not made an application yet please follow the guidance below.

 

 

Additional Business Support

Government have created a website covering all of the support measures put in place: www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-employers-and-businesses-about-covid-19/covid-19-support-for-businesses 


Please visit https://www.tameside.gov.uk/coronavirus/supportforbusiness to find information on wider business support available within Tameside and Greater Manchester.

Important Note: You do not need to employ Rating Agents or other organisations outside of the Council to claim support that is available. These agents will probably take a percentage of any relief or grant they claim on your behalf. Please be extra careful with what you sign and how you respond to organisations that may contact you offering support.
