Businesses across the borough that qualify for the retail rates relief scheme will see zero bills landing in the post.
Over 900 businesses in Rotherham are set to benefit from new business rates reliefs during the coronavirus outbreak.
403 businesses have already accessed existing retail reliefs and will now get an increase from 50% relief to 100% relief.
497 additional businesses are now also able to access the benefit following an expansion of the range of businesses who qualify by the government.
A number of businesses will have already received their zero bills with the rest to follow over the next few days.
Rotherham Council’s Strategic Director for Finance & Customer Services, Judith Badger said: “We are delighted that the updated, zero bills have already started to go out. It’s been a tough job to process these so quickly but we got ahead of the game by asking companies to provide information while we were still waiting on guidance from the government, which has helped us to get the help quicker to our businesses.
