Sometimes there are exceptional circumstance where we can reduce or remit the amount of Non-Domestic Rates you pay if you would suffer hardship if we don't, and it is in the best interests of our Council Tax payers for us to do so. This is in accordance with Section 49 of the Local Government Finance Act 1988.
