The council will not be issuing business rates bills to certain types of business until May/June. Businesses in the eligible retail, hospitality, leisure and nursery sectors that received 100% Expanded Retail discount or 100% Nursery Discount during 2020/21 will also be eligible for 100% Expanded Retail (or 100% Nursery discount) for the three month period 1 April 2021 to 30 June 2021 and also 66% rate relief for the remainder of 2021/22. Bills to these businesses have not been issued as part of the Council’s normal annual billing process in March and will instead be issued during May/June, with instalments to commence from July.

Note: Retail and Nursery Discounts will not show on your account at the moment. You do not need to contact the council to check your discount.
We recognise that this is an incredibly challenging time for our business community. We are working as fast as we can to ensure that the financial support provided by the government reaches those businesses who are eligible. Please be aware, that due to the volume of businesses in Westminster, we are dealing with an unprecedented number of grant payments. We are prioritising the payment of these grants and this may have an impact on our speed of response to normal business rate enquiries.
