This scheme is designed to assist smaller businesses who use or are entitled to use non-domestic properties with a combined rateable value of £35,000 or less per annum, and who may be entitled to a reduction in their annual non-domestic rates bill.
For example, if the combined rateable value of any properties held in Scotland is £10,000 or less you may be eligible for a 100% reduction in your rates; and if the combined rateable value is between say £18,001 and £35,000 you may be eligible for a 25% reduction.
Further detail can be found on the West Lothian Council website, and you will be asked by Council to fill in an application form. It should be noted that if you receive a reduction in rates the local authority will review this regularly.
