8. Pub Relief

From 1 April 2020 until 31 March 2021, public houses with a rateable value between £51,000 and less than £100,000 will be able to receive a £5,000 discount from their charge.

From 1 April 2020 until 31 March 2021, public houses with a rateable value less than £51,000 will be eligible for 100% retail relief.  

To qualify the business must be described in the Valuation Rating List as a public house. 

The definition of a 'public house' means any premises as defined in the Licensing Act 2003, which has a premises license authorising sale by retail of alcohol for consumption on the premises. In addition, the premises must be used principally for retail sales of alcohol to members of the public for consumption on the premises and sales must not be subject to the condition that buyers reside at or consume food on the premises.

It is for Teignbridge District Council to decide whether any premises qualifies and no relief will be given where the premises are unoccupied.

State aid rules apply.
