Re-occupation relief

New occupiers of retail premises that have been unoccupied for more than 12 months receive a 50% discount for 18 months, up to state aid limits.

Whilst the property must be a retail property, it doesn't need to be used for a retail purpose, but must have been reoccupied between 1 April 2014 and 31 March 2016.

You can apply for reoccupation relief by downloading and completing the application form and returning it to the address stated on the form.
