About Business Rates

COVID-19 Additional Relief Fund (CARF)

The government has launched the COVID-19 Additional Relief Fund (CARF) to support businesses affected by the pandemic who are ineligible for existing support linked to business rates.

The fund was originally announced in March 2021 with a support package of £1.5 billion, with Haringey’s share being £3.8 million.

This is a discretionary relief scheme and is available to reduce the eligible business rates liability for 2021/22 year only.

Eligibility criteria

These include, but are not limited to:

  • the business must have been trading from 1 April 2021
  • the business is not entitled to or have already received a reduction against their business rates liability for the 2021/22 billing year
  • the business must have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic during 2021/22 and was unable to adapt to the changing environment
  • premises must have been occupied and trading for the period. Businesses that were closed temporarily due to government instructions on COVID-19, will be treated as occupied for the purposes of this relief
  • the business must be solvent
