The UK Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government has published its official Guidance on Business Rates Relief, including which properties are eligible for reductions during the Covid-19 crisis.

From the Guidance, the report defines hotels, guest & boarding premises and self-catering accommodation to include hotels, guest and boarding houses, holiday homes and caravan parks and sites. Our interpretation of Para 15 gives flexibility as a safeguard, which therefore suggests that Serviced Apartments will be considered to be Self-Catering accommodation.
