Business Rates Holiday for Nurseries

What is it?

Nurseries in England* do not have to pay business rates for the 2020-21 tax year.

 

Am I eligible?

Properties that will benefit from the relief will be those occupied by providers on Ofsted’s Early Years Register and are wholly or mainly used for the provision of the Early Years Foundation Stage.

 

How do I access it?

1. There is no action for you. Local authorities will apply the business rates holiday to your bills. For more information please check the guidance on gov.uk.

2. You can estimate the business rate charge using the business rates calculator.

3. To find your local authority, you can use this search tool.

 

When can I access it?

This will apply to your business rates bills for the 2020-21 tax year. However, local authorities may have to reissue your bill. They will do this as soon as possible.

 

*Some aspects of business support are devolved. For business support outside of England go to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
