Registered charities are automatically entitled to an 80 per
cent reduction in their rates bills. Authorities have discretion to
reduce the bill further or to waive it altogether.
The Council also has discretion to grant relief of up to 100 per
cent to certain non-profit making bodies. The purposes of the
organisation applying for the relief must be philanthropic, or
concerned with education, social welfare, science, literature or
the fine arts.
