What is Transitional Relief

Find out about transitional arrangements and how it affects your bill

Transitional relief limits how much your bill can change each year as a result of revaluation.

This means changes to your bill are phased in gradually, if you’re eligible.

You get transitional relief if:

  • Your property is in England and
  • Your rates go up or down by more than a certain amount

To help pay for the limits on increases in bills, there also have to be limits on reductions in bills.

When will the scheme apply?

The relief applies to the property:

  • at the time of revaluation and
  • continues to apply to yearly increases and decreases until your bill reaches the full amount set by a revaluation

We will adjust your bill automatically if you’re eligible and this will show on the front of your bill.

2023 Transitional Relief Changes

The Transitional Relief scheme for the 2023 revaluation will not limit reductions in bills where there is a fall in the rateable value.
