Relief levels from 1 April 2019
The scheme will provide relief to ratepayers with properties in Scotland with a combined rateable value of £18,000 or less.
In addition, where the cumulative rateable value of a ratepayer's properties falls between £18,001 and £35,000 the scheme will offer 25 per cent relief to individual properties with a rateable value of up to £18,000.
The scheme provides the following relief:
- Up to £15,000 - 100 per cent relief
- £15,001 to £18,000 - 25 per cent relief
- Upper limit for cumulative rateable value £35,000 - 25 per cent relief (This will allow a ratepayer with 2 or more properties with a cumulative rateable value of between £18,001 and £35,000 to qualify for relief at 25 per cent on individual properties with a rateable value of up to £18,000)
Relief can still be claimed for prior financial years.
