At Autumn Statement 2022 the Chancellor announced a new business rates relief scheme for retail, hospitality, and leisure properties, worth an estimated £2.1 billion in 2023-24. The 2023/24 Retail, Hospitality and Leisure (RHL) relief scheme will provide eligible, occupied, retail, hospitality, and leisure properties with 75% relief, up to a cash cap of £110,000 per business. Under the cash cap, no ratepayer can in any circumstances exceed the £110,000 cash cap across all of their hereditaments in England. Where a ratepayer has a qualifying connection with another ratepayer then those ratepayers should be considered as one ratepayer for the purposes of the cash caps. The RHL relief scheme guidance provides local authorities with information about the intended operation and delivery of the policy. The Government anticipates that local authorities will include details of the relief to be provided to eligible ratepayers for 2023/24 in their bills for the beginning of the 2023/24 billing cycle. The Government has published guidance setting out the eligibility criteria for the scheme. This guidance can be found at
