Business Rates

Discretionary Covid-19 Additional Relief Fund (CARF)

No application required.

This is a discretionary scheme and applied to businesses at the discretion of Mid Sussex District Council.

Qualifying businesses will have their business rates bills credited during September 2022.

This relief awarded will be up to a maximum of £20,000 for the 2021/22 business rates bill.  Your business rates bill will show the actual amount if awarded.

Includes Businesses:

  • Occupied and liable for business rates 2021/22
  • Businesses adversely affected by Covid-19, but have received no other Covid related relief or discount


  • Businesses already in receipt of Covid reliefs or discounts
  • Unoccupied properties

How this will work?

A letter will be sent in September 2022 to all selected businesses. If the business believes they do not qualify for this scheme they should contact the Council directly to opt out. If the business does qualify, the award will be made against the business rates bill for the period 2021/22 and a revised bill sent to reflect this. 

All awards will be made by the 30th September 2022.
