COVID-19 business support and information

COVID-19 Additional Relief Fund (CARF)

We will look to automatically award 100% relief for the financial year 2021-22 to eligible businesses in July.

More details of our policy

Those that will be awarded will be sent an opt out form should they choose to opt out of this scheme.

If you aren't awarded the relief automatically, we'll be announcing our discretionary scheme shortly after, that will require an application. More details will be available once applications open.

If you're considering using the services of a rating advisor, please note that you don't have to be represented to make an application for this scheme. However, if you do wish to be represented you should be aware that members of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the Institute of Revenues Rating and Valuation are qualified and regulated by rules of professional conduct designed to protect the public from misconduct.

Before you employ or sign any documentation with a rating adviser, you should check that they have the necessary knowledge and expertise, as well as appropriate indemnity insurance. Take great care and, if necessary, seek further advice before entering into any contract.
