Support for nursery businesses that pay business rates
We will introduce a business rates holiday for nurseries in England for the 2020 to 2021 tax year.
You are eligible for the business rates holiday if:
• your business is based in England
Properties that will benefit from the relief will be hereditaments:
• occupied by providers on Ofsted’s Early Years Register
• wholly or mainly used for the provision of the Early Years Foundation Stage
How to access the scheme
There is no action for you. However, local authorities may have to reissue your bill to provide this support. They will do this as soon as possible.
You can estimate the business rate charge using the business rates calculator.
