How To Reduce Business Rates
If your rateable value is below £12,000 per annum, and you only have one property, you won't pay any business rates.  HOWEVER, you do need to apply for Small Business Rates Relief  as it is not given automatically, so make sure you have filled that in.  There are also discounts available via tapered relief up to £15,000 per annum, but again, you need to apply.

​Getting this relief could make a big difference to your costs and it's a simple form to fill in.
